Special events /
While many today celebrate with fireworks and grills
the ragged continental army practiced their fighting drills
while we watch parades, pass us by
our countrymen aplenty did suffer and die
but what did they fight for?
what was in their heart's core?
independence, not just a word, and not just an ideal
they wanted us to be free, which was for them unreal
independence is a way of life
a way of leaving tyrannical strife
the spirit of July 4th 1776 does not have to go out
we can bring it to every war, and every spiritual bout
Well done on a nicely written piece of poetry with a great meaning behind it. People dont usually pull this topic off well b ut u did. Well done~mel
I salute to you! kudos on a very fine poem! The flow was great and the rhyme scheme awsome! keep it up!You're on my fave!
For such a patriotic piece, it was good . When I read people trying to write poems about this kind of topic, they can`t work it, but you did a good job with it . If only other people could see it this way .
Great job. and i totally agree with what you said.
I wish i was good like you lol.
