Veterans Day (Poetry by Mynzah)

~ Veterans Day ~

A veteran of the Marine Corps team…
Looking to defend those being treated mean…
Across the world, in the air, on the land, and the sea…
Red, White and Blue didn’t matter to me…
Protect the whole planet as one family…
That’s how I saw the scene…

Then one day it became clear…
The manipulation through fear…
My heart froze but not the tears…
I could see pawns for oil and money…
Another’s resources via blood, greed and illusion of need…

Kill another human being…
Because they disagree with some leaders decree…
That’s a gang making a hit on the enemy…
Another me…
Following orders of the elite…
Who won’t fight their own war of greed…

Send the young and the poor…
Make them believe in what they’re fighting for…
Rally the nation to hate…
Another you, in a different place…

We are all next of kin…
And the Divine within…
Civilians and Veterans…
We can make wars end and peace begin…

Bring home the troops…
And send presidents and politicians…
Then for peace, they’ll find a reason…
Instead of choosing a weapon…
Or sending men and women…

Veterans day…
A reminder to eliminate war…
Thank our brothers and sisters…
Find Love for those we abhor…
