Share The Same Scars – Written Friday 17th October 2014 (Aged 39)

Share The Same Scars

share the same scars
the same –
even if you did not serve –
in the same battalion
the same experience
sense of humour
sense of indifference

share the same scars
having fought –
similar enemies
the breadth of life
the depth –
of our fights
share the same scars
felt the same pain
had such similar wounds

James Garratt – Friday 17th October 2014
