Camp Humphreys, South Korea
Sound of the shuttle
Tears falling down my soft cheek
Wondering what’s next
The trucks all arrive quickly
Boxes filled trucks leave
Later household goods arrive
To unpack again
Like Christmas but nothing new
Across thousands of miles.
Homesick, but for where.
An empty dining chair
looms across the table.
Another quiet meal today,
a price to pay
for such a...
Constant movement is a familiar concept
To all the military children stationed everywhere,
New friends are made, old friends move away
Which, at times, may be difficult to bear
The glimmer of a tear from what feels is lost
A closed fist in frustration and anger
A cracked smile to give myself assurance
The warm words from those that can never be lost
A new land with...
A military child,
But what is that?
I am called a military child
But why is that?
Is it as simple as my dad being in the Air Force?
Or is it more complex?
Is it moving across the continent?...
