What is Freedom? - An Independence Day Poem
Freedom-What does it mean now to man,
When we fulfill the Lord’s greater plan?
We fight our rival's and then decide
To proudly honor all those who've died-
Friend’s who suddenly turned into foe,
Some not knowing which side they're to go-
Soldiers fighting o’er battle lines
Troops wait to see what each day shall bring;
Freedom-It’s an interesting thing.
Some had it taken from their close grasp,
Others held strongly to freedom’s clasp.
Wives care for children while all alone
Some say “Set one ruler for them all!”
When is it okay to be the lead?
When will we see that Christ’s our great need?
Our liberty’s now being taken-
Our bright path to God, is now shaken-
Fighting for our land-this brave kingdom-
And all this-In the name of freedom.
And then there’s other’s who just don’t see
Evil‘s stalking as thieves in the night-
