Free Verse Month of the Military Child

Waving goodbye to my loved ones,

Whether my friends or my father,

Pulls tight at my heartstrings,

But every place I go is a new start.


Boxes piled high as the ceiling

Memories are packed away,

As we prepare for a new adventure,

On air mattresses that hurt my back.


The empty house reflects my feelings inside.

Bonds were not broken, but became weak,

As I leave the past behind me,

To look towards the future.
