The Poetry Crib: Me, Too













Me, Too
by: SONiA of disappear fear

Her Daddy was a soldier in the Viet Nam War
She was proud to see her father
in a fresh pressed uniform
He came home on a stretcher  in 1966
Welcomed by fellow Ameericans throwing
tomatoes and sticks
He said, "Darling, Don't you worry.
There are 2 sides to everything
and i did what i believe in and i want you to do the same
I stood up for my country, Yeah that's a solid bet
and I'll stand up for freedom
every chance i get....

Cause America Shines
in front of me
and all the world could see
if they wanted to
i rasie this flag for you
Me, Too

She grew up on a BIble
She grew up on love
She grew up thinking she could change the world
if she only worked hard enough
so she became a lawyer hoped to marry a good looking man
but she fell in love
with the girl next door
so that wasn't part of the plan

But America Shines
in front of me
and all the world could see
if they wanted to
i rasie this flag for you
Me, Too

The years spin by
while the corn grows high
for every train you catch
you miss one
so much of life
just passes by
it was time to tell Daddy
this one

She sat down in the corner
She could still see the door
She said, "daddy i gotta tell you
something i've never said before..."
he said, "Shhhhh...
Every body has a war.
You see it's not about oil and
it's not about guns and
it's not about rainbows
It's about daughters
and sons
If you believe in tomorrow
Then i have taught you well
'Cause if you don't beleive in yourself
then Life's a living Hell.

And you'll always Shine
in front of me and all the world could see
if they wanted to
I raise this flag for you
Me, Too
