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.
