To Live

I've decided to dive deep into the dark recesses of my Microsoft Word files, and find an ancient poem that I wrote (and by ancient, I mean when I was in 8th grade.) especially for a day like this.
Take some time to think about the brave soldiers who have fought for our country, today's our day to remember them. We are such a blessed country, and sometimes we need to just stop and count our blessings.

It's raining

tears

for those

who have lost

their loved ones

in fights

in wars

for everyone who died.

For they

had a reason

to live.

For they-

even those

who chose wrong-

made a difference

to those

around them.

For no one

is all bad

or all good.

Nothing is black

and white.

Even the clouds

are gray

today.

But the ground-

watch it.

New life

has grown

from what was

lost.

Rain

that was tears

makes the flowers

bloom

and the birds

sing.

Don't mourn

forever

for what is

lost.

Think ahead

to the

flowers

to the

birds

to live.
