To The Mainstream

So many men have suffered for years in silence.
They don't know why they suffer daily.
It always affects their home life and jobs.
He lives in a new home for veterans.
A place to form a family and start over.
It's a colonial-style house
near a doctor's office and residence.
A home for four.
He’s the only resident.
A disabled Vietnam veteran
who's clean and sober.
He gets 800 dollars a month.
“Where are you going to live on that?”
He wants to rebuild family values
and look at how he got to be where he is.
There's no one to pamper him.
It's a last step in getting out
of the being homeless
and back to the mainstream.
