A Recruit's Day
Posted By: Bonni Orlasky 07-07-11
Sometimes it's tough, sometimes I'm sad
Sometimes I miss just what I had
I miss the food, I miss my bed
My favorite things spin in my head.
Sometimes I sit and wonder why
I chose to give this life a try.
I see a dedication here
That's unsurpassed, both far and near
The men that work and try and train
And smile through each and every pain.
We know our final day is near
When we will hear our family cheer.
And when I see our flag up high
I understand the reason why
It took some time to make me see
A Marine is what I chose to be.
Though Parris Island's days are long
This brotherhood's where I belong.
