Military Child

by Eric Ji
Humphreys Middle School

Being a military child is difficult
When parents leave to catch criminals.

Parents making sacrifices,
Making our world like paradises,
Fighting for their families,
Also fighting for their communities

Remember the next time that you are driving by,
See the flag flying proud and high.
They fight for us every day,
For our safety and freedom far, far away

Wanting to see your family
Also having some empathy.
We all miss our parents, especially your dad.
That's why it makes us sad.
