Poetry: Stars and Stripes

Standard

For those who are used to receiving my typical posts, you will find something different in this poetry post. This is a poem that is a part of a Poetry collection that comes from a time of my my searching days

Stars & Stripes

Struggling we have had

in this country we call ours,

the spirit of our land

shows through the stripes and stars.

Controlling our own fate,

it’s what we needed most,

a land to call our home,

a claim for us to boast.

Well, we got the deed

and this land was ours to keep,

but that spirit of our fight

has since now gone to sleep.

Our values see to drift,

no goals for us to strive,

a country that’s in limbo,

a fight to stay alive.

Again, we must unite

the spirit of Stars and Stripes,

to show our true forefathers

that  their cause was just and right.
