The Marine

Tipped his cap. 

Looked at me. 

Fought for country. 

Land and sea. 

Made it home. 

Mental scars. 

Physically fine. 

Memories jar. 

Car backfiring. 

Sounds like a gun. 

Tried to think,

Stop or run. 

Proud of service. 

Always will be. 

I am a marine. 

Fought for land , country and sea.
