Our country, our government, ignores them, as though it never happened.
As if they have a reason to be ashamed.
They died, they loved, they did exist, though they were never officially named.
their families shared them, because, our government sent them, not giving a valid reason why.
Our loving protectors, gave of themselves, all willing to fight and die.
Now they are ignored and forgotten, tossed aside like an old worn out shoe ,
in need of our government assistance, for the recognition they are due.
Medical, mental, and physical needs---and homes and places to live,
Why must they keep on giving? When they’ve nothing left to give,
Put your heart in gear, put your arms out and hug them,
we give value to the lives they bared,
Even though you don't know them, that shouldn't really matter, because, their lives they shared,
They didn’t ask why? They trusted us to honor their dedication,to their loved ones, let peace be real,
And now they need help. Won’t you acknowledge their worth, and let "Freedom" really “Heal."Honor our Veterans, its way overdue! If you see a disabled veteran anywhere,
Please don't look away as if you're ashamed of them, or embarrassed by them.
Give them a huge smile, and a well deserved "Thank You!" Just a simple Thank You!
