Why Do You Have to Go?

Why do you have to go?

Is it really that important?

Why do they need you?

Is it worth all the blues?

The high that adrenaline brings

The tears of sweat that beam from your head

The anguish that causes so much pain

Mental crashes

Fatal disasters

Entering countries

Exiting our own

For freedom?

For us?

Who wants you gone?

The rich steal from the poor

Breaking families up

The depression sets in

Divorces sky rocket

Moral values disappear

For us?

For you?

Yes, for our country

For our country you will fight

For our country you will go

People complain

Things are lost

Are we grateful?

Who is grateful?

Thankfulness is only but a brief moment

Time still passes

Clouds come and go

The sun sets and the moon rises

People walking to and fro

Changes in seasons

How do we repay for the time that was lost?

“Thanks”

Is that all?

For many, that is all

How can I ever thank you for what you do?

Really, there is no way

So as time passes

As clouds come and go

As the sun sets and the moon rises

I will think of you

And say “Thank you”
