Memorial Day


You gave your life

You didn’t even know me

Fought as a loyalist

In a land without our freedoms

Endured horrors

We only see in movies

Ate who knows what

Had to keep top secret information

From family missing

You tremendously

And now you are

Here with a cross

Denoting how you

Went to heaven

We remember you

We will always remember you

-Jennie Nawrocki



Many of you know

Or maybe you don’t

But dealing

With anger and depression

And keeping it repressed

So that when I see you

I’m not that girl

Spoiling the mood

However the hurt is there

Difficult to heal

For the confusion

Of where, whom, how

Makes it hard

To solve the problem

The desire to get better

Is strong

Appropriately placing

My emotions

In the right place

The right time

Right manner

Support me on my search

My way to get better

As willingly will do the same for you

-Jennie Nawrocki
