Starved For Bullets: A Collection of Scars

By Ryan Goodrich

Poetry, Biography & memoir, Current affairs | eBook


Ryan Goodrich, retired U.S. Marine, takes readers to the darkest corners of modern warfare, asking us to look at cultural differences, religion, and the shaky hand that is American politics through unflinching eyes as reality spews from the pages. Interwoven with inflexible truths and unsettling brutality, these poems will resonate long after the final bullet is spent. This collection of scars recounts the struggles military members endure when death stares them in the face. It's about understanding what our nation was built upon and how we've gone astray. It's about remembering those who gave the ultimate sacrifice. It's about dealing with loss and differences. It may shock and place a bitter taste in your mouth at times, but the goal is to open eyes and make a statement so that future generations can benefit from our mistakes and victories in the best possible way. It's about you and I and everyone in-between. It's the journey we all endure and it should never be squandered or forgotten.
