The Fourth

This is an older piece.  I have no words today…but I do so much want my America back.


We danced in the streets

and sent fire into the sky

the people cried with joy

it brought tears to my eye

my home, my America

still free, still proud

celebrating freedom

our anthem sung aloud

children clung to parents

parents to each other

we shared our independence

gave hope to one another

our loyalty is steadfast

our grace defies all wrongs

we are our father’s hope

our mother’s loving song

America the beautiful

be strong, be great, be true

remember how we freely bled

for our red, our white and our blue
