Walk In Their Boots

Walk In their Boots

 Thousands of miles walked in these boots

Patrolling the streets in foreign lands

Soldiers boots upon the sand

Walk in their boots and understand their pain

Battles fought, look down to see friends blood stains

Foreign places sent to fight

So many soldiers don't sleep at night

Walk in their boots know how they feel

Then you will see their pain is real

Soldiers walk in their boots everyday

Protecting our freedom in every way

    TERESA ~ Thanks for caring and sharing about all our dedicated Military ! Boots (especially ARMY BOOTS) play heel with the feet and i guess you have seen some very bad blisters in your time ! I love the "Rhythm of Boots" that flows through this poem when recited ! Well done HUGS ~ BRIAN

      Good write and tribute, it is just a shame that those with the power cannot stop these brave men and women having to march in 'foreign places'.

        Echoing Briansodes' comment on the rhythm of boots through this; very clever. You take us to share the view from the men and their boots with your words. Thank-you.
