This black earth it holds me back
I only wish that I were home
So you could tell me what was right
And I could try to change what's wrong
It's all the distance between us now
That gives me fear that you are gone
Please hear my heart that beats loud
And just hold onnnnnnn
Just hold on...
If the battles I have lived through
Were in vain then give me death
In this war there are only losers
As the victors beat their chests
I'm just animal in nature
Without knowing I am in your heart
Just not knowing brings out anger
And it's tearing me apart
Hold on...hold on...
The fertile earth consumes me now
Underneath this great dark cloud
Your last words deeply cut me
From my grave I'll cry out loud!
Someone waiting for a Soldier to come home wrote the other anonymous poem
save again for later
bring the ache
tomorrow still gone
Credit to Sgt.1st Class Andre Anderson of the United States Army for his winning poem.

Air Nation Guard Colonel Gerard Mangis was arrested Wednesday March 5th. He was arrested on the account of having 110 criminal accounts filed against him. The accounts filed against him were conspiracy, honest service wire fraud, false claims against the United States, and theft of government property. I believe that this guy should be stripped of all military decorations on his uniform and every perk that came with it should be disbanded and he should never be set free. This man is a disgrace to military personnel. He is the type of person who joins the military for all the wrong reasons and not for the greater good but only for himself and anything that could help him. For all the active military personnel this makes our military look like some of us are just corrupt bastards that will give out anything just to earn a quick buck in our pockets. When in reality it is true that some will join for the money but some also join to help the greater good. This guy is a disgrace and I hope to high hell that this guy doesn't have a family and if he does I would feel bad for them that they would possibly have the burden to have to deal with this guy’s messed up choices. They would possibly catch the backfire from his poor choices instead of people leaving the weight to only be on the Colonels shoulders if something does start to come down and the family is threatened or treated different. I wouldn't like to see innocent people being treated different by their friends and neighbors just because of what somebody in their family did. But I hope that this guy gets life in a federal prison do to his crimes against the American Government. For more information click here and read more about it.
