He Stumbled Into Our Home

By Nicholas Martin

He stumbled into our home

covered in blood, dirt, and dust

we all just stared

not knowing what to do

he sat down at our table

I ran into the kitchen

threw together a quick meal

I used the last of our rations

so that our freedom fighting soldier

could enjoy his last meal

he ate it all, not leaving a crumb

and went back into war

the same way he came in:

just a scared little boy

Nicholas Martin is a junior at E.C. Glass high school and enrolled as an early college student at CVCC. He loves to go on nature hikes and to go fishing.
