Why I fight for peace By: Cpl. Cloy Richards I'm just a veteran what can I say? im not a real American never worked a real job joined the marines at age seventeen never even paid taxes only made minimum wage a dollar sixty-six an hour and a lifetime of guilt and a lifetime of rage to live with the rest of my days i hope god forgives me for my ways i only lived to serve and pay homage and stay true to the red white and blue i ain't black but i understand the price that they paid nah I wasnt given AIDS, raped or made a slave but I've been kicked to the curb, kicked in the ribs, and spit in my face all from a common enemy, what a disgrace how dare lady liberty shit on our graves I watch my best friend get blown to pieces then watch the monkeys on capitol hill throw us around like feces goddamn please, i deserve more respect than that when it rains i can still feel the shrapnel in my back look at me, I'm the poster boy for insanity cuz i've killed so many innocent Iraqi's but how would you feel you think you could deal with this pain I call life I doubt it, you might could try but end up on the wrong end of a bottle and end up ending yo life you'd be halfway to killing yourself the same place as me
