Even In a Crowd, You Can Be Lonely
I found this while cleaning out some stuff in my apartment. It is a collection of poems I used to have on my wall. I believe most were written by soldiers but it is difficult to tell since most are anonymous. I think I copied them from a book about life as a soldier but I cannot recall the title. I kept them because I felt like I could sympathize with the authors. I hope you won't mind if share some of these poems because they are some of the most expressive words I have ever read.
This first one hits home for me because I think I felt close to the way the author did for almost a decade. I look back on those times and shudder sometimes. I was listening to a lot of Morrissey and The Cure as well. Bad combination, thank God I stopped drinking and wasn't on drugs. After I found this I found myself wondering, like I did when I first read this, who the author was and what ever happened to him. I pray that he got out of his funk somehow and found happiness. If not, maybe fate was merciful and some battlefield somewhere took him out of his misery. Be warned, this is a very expressive but depressing read.

BE A MAN AND LEAVE THIS POST INTACT.
JESUS CHRIST HAS REMOVED HIS BLESSING FROM AMERICA BECAUSE OF YOU AMERINAZIS. YOU CAN’T MURDER PEOPLE TO STEAL THEIR OIL, THEN LIE ABOUT IT! DON’T YOU THINK YOU’RE GOING TO HELL FOR THAT?
It's so much fun to see someone so self-righteous dig themselves into a hole. This guy is too easy and not worth the effort.
