There Was a Boy 🇺🇸

WAR

There was a boy

He went to war

He fought with valor
He held the scars
He bled in silence
Behind black doors

I tried to heal
the broken parts

My light could not

invade his heart

and

though he’s gone

I love him still

There was a boy

I always will

* AP photojournalist Horst Faas took this iconic photo on June 18, 1965, during the Vietnam War.

*I chose it for its haunting beauty & because the boy in the photo reminds me of a boy I once loved.
