For the 4rth...just a thought and a poem

Thursday, July 04, 2013

We are the land of the free
and freedom means a lot to me
Why can't those others leave us alone
This is the place that I call home
So many have died for our right
Many have lost the battles fight
Don't tread on our stars and stripes
Don't complain or post your gripes
These are the people who have died for you.
They gave everything, even their lives too
Why can't it be free to be you?
Why does it cost so much for the red, white and blue?
Why can't my Daddy please come home?
How far does freedom have to roam?
I love the red , white, and blue
and I know that you do too.
But I want the people to wake up and see
We are all connected you and me.
Let this world come together in peace
Let all this fighting cease.
Here is my wish for us all
Whether short, skinny, fat or tall
I want love to spread around
Instead of fallen soldiers blood smear the ground.
Can you watch this and not cry? I cried.
