YOU THINK YOU KNOW?

ou think you know
What they went through?

Those who went to Vietnam,
Just to save you and me?

You do not know the fears they faced.
You do not know why they feel disgraced.

They fought for us, and we turned away.

I think of that, Night and Day.

The saddened souls, who feel unloved:
Those very same souls, looking for love.

You think you know what they went through?

Let me guess….

You really don’t, now do you?
