America the beautiful

America the beautiful song is what resides
In my heart all day long,
Red dirt roads lead into long winding trails,
Mountains filled with fire and smoke,
From a distance you can see it burn from tree to tree
As you wonder how could something like this be?
Continuous stories on the news,
Of what is happening and what is new,
People from everywhere opening doors and hearts,
As this rapid fire continues and more begin to start,
Firefighters doing there best,
To save and protect,
As they go in to the mountains,  
Risking there life’s to fight the fires,
Remember to pray for them for there courage
And ask the Lord to protect these angels with great bravery,
They do it for you and for me,
So maybe its time to take a step forward 
And not look back,
At this time we may be surrounded by smoke,
Fire and some are seeing falling ash,
But we should never give up,
One day this fire will be gone,
And we should all sing the America the beautiful song,
Remembering what we have,
Not to for sake it,
But to cherish this beautiful land we are living in.
