See his poem below.

His Daily Routine

He opens his eyes

He lay in his bed

Just another day

He thinks in his head


He looks in the mirror,

Leans over the basin

His hair is a mess,

His beard is unshaven


He opens the door,

Smells the fresh air

The neighbors, they watch

But He does not care


He walks to his car

He knows where he’s going

He’s been there before,

Where his tears started flowing


He arrives at the place

To see his old friends

He visits them weekdays

And even weekends


They talk for a while,

Reminisce their war stories

Of when they were younger

When they had more worries


The man starts to cry

He now has to go

He says his goodbye

To the crosses in rows


He remembers them daily

Through the pain of his woes

The war may be over

But his pain still grows.
