Wounds of War

Some wounds of war
Are never seen
They're buried deep within
No open wound
No Purple Heart
No blemish on the skin
But these are wounds
That leave a scar
Upon our very soul
They tear our hearts
Cause misery
And take a heavy toll
Our bloodless wounds
Cause us to ask
Oh GOD,what was it for
We go through life
Not knowing why
We have these
Wounds of War

Words so true. Ever see a Vietnam vet not look up when he hears a chopper? There are so many sounds and smells that never leave a veteran.
