Poem written by a US Marine in 3rd Battalion, 11th Marines, 1st Marine Division. Date unknown.

Some people sit and wait
Cannot love and cannot hate
They brood on fears, believe in fate
Controlled within their star –

They seek a new direction
And full of new objections
They never make corrections
And never travel far

Awakening suddenly, madly
And wanting truth so badly
They face the future sadly
And stay the way they are –
