A New Experience in Life

By: Jacob Mars

Years after leaving the military,

Jared was ready to come home,

But soon Jared was going to school in Tyler.

Jared was moving tomorrow,

I was both glad and heartbroken,

Not ready to see Jared go.

But the next day,

We were loading Jared’s boxes into the trucks.

When I saw the trucks disappear,

I would not see him in nine months.
