A 9 Year Old’s Veterans’ Day Poem

by Alec Gagnon


fighting in the air and sea

who feels the damage of the war and ship and body

who need food and water and friends

who fears the death of people around them losing their country

who loves their freedom, friends and family

who thinks about the worry of his or her family

who believes in their countries freedom


fighting on the ground doing whatever it takes
