Mother of Marine (MoM)

 

Mother of Marines

I am a MoM and I love my country

I wonder how the world will be in 10 years

I hear the voices of my boys from when they were little

I see them playing and laughing

I want them to be happy

I am a MoM and I love my country

 

I pretend that everything is okay

I feel that I don’t have control

I touch my heart when I think of them

I worry that they will go to war

I cry for all of the young men and women serving our country

I am a MoM and I love my country

 

I understand their loyalty and love of country

I say “I am so proud of you”

I dream about their futures

I try to make them proud too

I hope they can make a difference and stay true to their beliefs

I am a MoM and I love my country
