Our Boys

Our Boys
so young,
so full of hope.

Sent away
to defend us,
our country.

Still protected
by us,
in the nursery of life.

Taken away
from security
to be our security

Maybe not even to return home
but if they do,
they return as men,
as heros,
not as the children
as we left them.
-AR Broadley
