there is an old chinese saying:
"true words are not beautiful, beautiful words are not true."

i wish i had known that when i heard the recuriter's presentation
he had come to our school to tell us the country needed us
to offer us an adventure
to sign us up

listening to him, i could tell he had come for me.

i didn't understand my mother's tears when i told her i'd enlisted
i thought she'd be proud of me

now
the sand in my shoes
reminds me of his beautiful words
and my mother's tears burn my toes
