Poem by Carlos Rojas

marine morocco
Walking the streets of Africa,
these massacres occur so unexpectedly
the other night some Marines died,
never be resurrected

everyone’s got a day & time,
nothing in life’s perfected
their families cry,

these are the times we see life in perspective
the purpose for the hurting,
these modern day disasters
I wish that I could call it,
I feel no one would answer
prayers for the dead
but they live on
as we continue fighting

these are my brothers,
this is family, we stand as one united
for all Marines who witnessed death but just couldn’t escape
may the Lord’s angels give you peace, and guide you to his gates
