Heroes - Sometimes the battle gets fought at home, a poem from proud parents to their son
Heroes, sometimes don't go to battle,
sometimes they have to conquer their within,
sometimes their actions speak louder than words,
others, through fate, never get the chance to win.
But you are indeed, our hero,
you gave it your all and then a little more
and we just wanted you to know that we're proud of you
and that's really what these words are for.
It takes a brave man to even consider the military,
especially with the world on its precarious edge,
it takes a brave man to volunteer,
and an even braver man to take the pledge.
And we're sorry you didn't get your party,
but you had to leave with only hours to spare
and as a marine, you knew your duty,
responsiveness goes with the uniform and the hair.
There were a lot of tears that night,
we knew you'd chosen the infantry and the risks attached,
but you were determined to make it as a marine
and that determination, simply couldn't be matched.
Because you always strive to be the best,
in anything you set your mind to
and that mind set helped you through boot camp,
God only knows what you had to go through.
And in five long weeks of hell,
you were already the leader of the squad,
but then fate decided to intervene
and you were struck, like a bolt from God.
And so very quickly and cruelly,
your dreams turned into dust,
but maybe everything for a reason
and maybe, in fate you should trust.
Because, believe me, you never let us down,
we are immensely proud of what you've done,
in fact, you've never disappointed us in anything,
you are in every way, a wonderful son.
And your little girl misses you so,
she misses you with all her heart
and today is the first day of the rest of your life
and I think with your spirit, that's a pretty good start.
So, just know that you haven't failed us
and yes, there's one more thing you should know,
we love you, we're very proud of you
and yes son, you are definitely our hero.

Thank you so much! The poem looks great. There is only one little thing I see that I would like to change. Could you just change the word soldier to marine? I think it has it in there twice, but other than that everything looks great.
