Never To Be Forgotten
Author: Dean Morris


The ink in this pen has changed from black to red
From all of the patriotic soldiers blood that has been shed

The endless wars that have been going on for countless years
has caused more broken hearts and tears, then making things clear

And what i don't understand the most
is why there is starving homeless people from coast to coast

does anyone not seem to notice what these people are going through
no one even cares to make a difference, in this world there is only a few

that would pay any attention to try and make a difference
no one hears their screams, diminishing off in the distance

our soldiers are fighting for their lives, to make the future a better place
we need to give our lives to these brave men for keeping our homes and neighborhoods safe

the bodies pile higher with every progressing day
every single one of them is a hero, now wasted away

never to be forgotten, never to be vanished
until the day we all die, and are rid of this planet

Amen, Dean

Everybody talks about supporting our troops, very few actually do anything to help them. We owe our Vets for our very way of life. If not for them, there is no telling what kind of world we would be living in. As for the homeless people, the ones that hurt me the most to see, are the Veterans. They, most of all, should be cared for, by society and by the government. We owe them that much respect, for all they have sacrificed for us.
