Halle McCarver’s Award Winning Poem, My Gratitude

My Gratitude by Halle McCarver

All the people who risked their lives
Gave their most, gave their all,
their sacrifice.

It’s an honor that such brave men
Did it for my family,
My counrty and my friends

How courageous, through those times,
When the world’s at war,
their every moment at risk,

I only hope I show my gratitude,
as well as they show their love for the ones
they don’t know;
we forever show
Our gratitutde and our sorrow.
