my soldiers poem of the day

Freedom Is Worth Fighting For


We spilled our blood in foreign lands to get them to understand
That we had our own civil war cause freedom is worth fighting for
We do not want to be the guardians of the world and tell others what to do
But the rights of man is also up to you.
The American soldiers wear their uniforms proud and we don’t
Hide in civilian clothes in a crowd
putting bombs every where, taking innocent lives and trying
To create fear.
In every war since the beginning of time because of the uniform
The enemy was defined.
Do you wear civilian clothing because you are ashamed
then your leaders are the ones to blame
Do you think anyone will remember the names of the suicide bombers
From the truth nothing can be farther.
Search the libraries, go ahead just look
This is the reason freedom is worth fighting for
So tyranny can march out the door.
