-It’s not what was sold to me, what was told to me
-Idealized discipline and unlimited opportunity
-It’s a well-oiled hypocrisy, a well-defined bureaucracy
-Lead by too many spot lights who don’t care
-No individual or resource is spared
-A hand shake here and a hand wave there
-Politics before competence
-Selective policies before logical equality
-Embracing mediocrity instead of celebrating creativity
-A directive here and a delegation there
-No consequence for laziness
-Save for the broken backs of those who never quit
-Notional oversight over methodical development
-Shit in and shit out
-Yet so shocked when the mission doesn’t work out
-Readiness in personnel, equipment, and training
-Yet we don’t hold all to equal accountability
-Yet we don’t emphasize responsibility to maintain property
-Yet we don’t provide deliberate time to resource and train properly
-As we downsize, issues continue to climb
-The same tired souls tow the line
-From point A to point B
-Sacrifices they decline to see
-But a self-validation is guaranteed
-Hunger for esprit de corps
-Pray for another door
-Salute to a better day
-Change be the right of way
Seek strength and beauty in everything and the everyday. Live life as you are moving towards something greater. True growth is part of the human experience.
