sweet land of liberty

As I sit here
There are so many things
I could write about
There are so many things 
That I just want to shout
My life is a mess
And so is my country
As part of this conciousness
I sometimes imagin
What could be
I'm not a politician or even a soldier
I don't live by looking
Over people's shoulders
I just want to live
And try to live right
I believe in freedom
And the wars they did fight
They fought for independence
And our rights to be free
Their blood was spent
Because of what they believed
They fought to end slavery
In the name of God
No matter what His name is
God is God
They fought for freedom
While Nazis had the Jews
By the throught
They fought for freedom
While Big Brother approached
When something that seemed right
Was just another sour note
They sent soldiers
To stop the communist growth
We saw dictators
Almost make themselves kings
These and other moments
We had to help freedom ring
And this present turmoil
Called the Arab Spring
They think it's new
But it's a very old thing
Some will live while others die
But eventually there will be
Freedom for each and every life
Even in free countries
We still fight this fight
To give every man something
He believes is his right
The only thing constant
In this world is change
Nothing lives forever
And crumbles as remains
Refugee and consentration camps
Lay empty and dormant
The captives were set free
As the bible informed us
Who knows what we'll be
If on earth we live again
A slaves dream
Is to one day be a free man

    Poetry not only loves woman but God and country as well.

    PD I feel as free as any american can feel. But you misunderstand, my poetry has a purpose. Our country is divided on what to do about Syria. As a poet it's part of my duty to inspire the nation to do what is right. All the things that I named are places in time where good fought evil. And because of America good prevailed. America cannot stand by and do nothing while these terrible weapons are used by evil oppressive menwho refuse to give up power.
