It Takes More than Flying a Flag (My 4th of July Poem)

There is a different between boundaries

And not respecting someone

The balance isn’t always easily done

 

Our country is now so divided

With the 4th upon us

But unity has me excited

 

I honor you

But not always your choices

There is a difference

 

This 4th let’s celebrate

A new age dawning

We decide the future, not fate

 

Other countries can have intense discussions

Why can we?

Start a chain reaction of American liberty!

 

I know it isn’t always easy

This cost of freedom

It takes more than flying a flag!
