Brave Service

I’ve lived a life of ease most times
I haven’t fought a fight
I haven’t risked my life for those
That thought a war not right

I never understood the pain
They felt when they came home
All that they gave seemed meaningless
Because we did not know

We did not know the hurt inside
We did not know the danger
We did not take the time to thank
The ones so filled with anger

The only honorable thing that’s left
Is to thank them one by one
For their brave service to this land
And all that they have done
