And Liberty For All

AND LIBERTY FOR ALL Our nation’s liberty remains stern and strong, Though there are people who wish us to fall. Our shields are the strength of our nation's force, And the will of the people will never default.   Composed of people from every nation, Building together a nation of prosperity. America was and is created by many, Teaching us of her sensitivity and intensity.   Built on the backs and the strength of the people, Despite the fear and relentless aggression by defeaters. Our strength and shield from offensive intruders, Only forces our nation to become the aggressor.   Where are we now and where will our strength come from, That is needed to defeat the aggressors who hate us? Why have they come to the country of the free, If they resent the freedom, we possess and breathe?   We must continue to rebuild and regain strength, To fight for our freedom and rights we possess. We must build on our faith and rely on our God, To help us protect and defend all we’ve got.   We must thank our God for the good and ask to protect, The hungry and weary that wish for the best. We must take from our forefathers their strength to hold tight, The freedom we now have and will hold through the night.   We’ve taken a few steps backward on the battlefield of freedom, We’ve given into the greed so many pledge to behold. We’ve stumbled and fallen into the arms of the greedy, Without a thought for those who are needy.   Why have we followed instead of leading, And taken the easy road we were given? We must take a tact and one minor step back, To preserve the hundreds of years we've been given.   Our freedom is threatened, and our lives left pending, The selfishness of others who are jealous of our freedom. We must stand tall and bare our strength, To preserve this land for the young and the living.   God Bless America!   © 2012 by Lee Christine Brownlee. All rights reserved
