This work has reached the exceptional level
We carry our fellow soldiers when they can't walk.
"I Carry my Brother's Heavy Load." by Liberty Justice
I carry my brother's heavy load
Down life's dusty road.
If, I should stumble or fall,
My tired body, you will haul.
To lighten my heavy load.

Soldiers have an emergency alert code.
Traveling back and forth to our abode.
Often we make a 911 call.
I carry my brother's heavy load.

Dodging bombs that explode.
Ducking missiles blasting the road.
Tearing off roofs, knocking down our wall.
Soldiers drag on in battle, still standing tall.
My back aches, knees buckle under the load.
I carry my brother's heavy load.

Author Notes
My family was in the armed services, and I have known friends who served in the U.S. military. Indeed, relatives have passed away due to injuries in the wars in foreign lands.

Other friends and associates suffer from PTSD--Post Traumatic Syndrome Disorder where they still hear bombs, missiles and sounds of war blasting off in their ears. Often, they are afraid to even go to sleep, due to recurring nightmares. Some are paranoid thinking the enemy is peeping at them through their windows.

I have given wrapped, sealed and unopened bottles of water and food to homeless VETS and other homeless people sleeping on sidewalks and under city bridges.
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
