Dragging Pride

patriotic poems



Stepping off my vessel
as one Navy Valor
holding onto my pride
draped is my honor.

I struggle to step in your universe
the waters took stock in my life
it isn’t as easy as a cannons burst
there are few that can play the fife.

I gave to you my courage
which many sort not give
I gave my life without rage
yet, toward me, you’re vindictive.

I walk proud in your shadow
I carry all this for freedom
in my struggle I stand like an arrow
today I will be honored in the Colosseum.
