Mark, this poem is amazing...a lot of people lose sight of what's really important, I'm glad to see you haven't! People are quick to judge the President and the decisions he makes but they fail to realize that the reason they are able to do that is because of the freedom that our country is built on...thank you so much for reminding us! Great work, definitely a 5!
"The farmers and the workers
Who planted freedom's seed."
That was my favorite part. Obviously, this poem will make the majority of Americans choke up due to nationalism...but I liked this poem because the expression, flow, and harmony all worked together. I probably would have even liked it if I wasn't American.
Thanks though, because I have some friends that are fighting in Iraq right now; and they would love to able to read this.
Oh ..my gosh!! That was so mind blowing..this has got to be one of my favorite poems..The way you write and your way with words is magnificent! You have touched me deeply with this poem and its so great to see another person speack so kindly of our country! Amazing job!!
