An American Flag

Contributed by waynster on Saturday, 16th May 2015 @ 08:08:57 AM in AEST
Topic: Patriotic

I was created as a representation
together, my colors are beautiful and bright
I am held high with pride
oh what a beautiful sight

I have been carried into many battles
some have been lost and some have been won
My representation is freedom
earned by the sacrifices of a mother, father, daughter or son

I am the American Flag
honoring your salutes or hand over heart
I represent your strength
together, this country we will not allow to fall apart

Keep your honor in our country
stand tall when terror comes our way
Sing our National Anthem loud
let everyone hear what our pride has to say

My colors resemble bloodshed
they also resemble bandages for wounds of war
They resemble strongly
the soldierís lives lost on any foreign shore

Nobody should ever
turn their pride on me
Trying to remove me from schools
is something we just canít let be

To lie me on the ground
and walk upon me with your feet
Itís such a disgrace to our country
but the honor of our Veterans, you will never defeat

Lately, people have chosen to desecrate me
itís a shame they feel this way
If they do not honor my representation
then they should find another country where they can stay

A difficult subject you have tackled here.
Moving to another country is like divorcing your history. There are disappointments, misconceptions, expectations unmet in this new place.
But if it is to be your home; treat it with respect;
defend your decision.
If you are not proud of your choice; make a better one. You are free to make mistakes here--just make them quietly, and be glad you can.
