Battle-Scarred (poem)

By Lura Stephanie Gaiek

[Printer-Friendly Version]

Father's Day 2005,
The day my dad last was alive.
Diabetes, heart disease, lung cancer too,
Agent Orange, what did you do?
You stole my father through and through.
A Bronze Star, 2 Air Medals, and a Purple Heart,
Are still not enough to unbreak my heart.


—Lura Stephanie Gaiek
