Desert Storm

My hero is the girl that signed her life away at 18.

My hero is the girl that followed her brother and fiance into war.

They called it Operation Iraqi Freedom while taking theirs.

My Hero is the girl that let me borrow her clothes.

My hero is the girl that picked out my Prom dress from Kuwait.

My hero is the girl that sent me flowers from Iraq.

My hero could stop you dead in your tracks from miles away

If you talk about me.

My hero could drop kick you a million different ways

If you pick on me.

My hero has the prettiest smile and a soul glowing white light.

But my hero has a better eye than Annie Oakleys Sight.

If you pick on me. 🙂

She is my Desert Storm.

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “My Hero.”
