My younger brother wrote this and asked me to post it on my site and see what people thought, so please comment and vote.....thanks :)

Whenever my life is at an all-time low,
I can just look up at the flag and know.
I know that it will be alright
Through all the wars and all the fights.

Even when everything seems to go wrong,
It will be alright as long as I can hear the song.
The song that tells of Freedom and hope.
The song that Frances Scott Key wrote.

This country works through hard times better than any other,
We stand united, brother to brother.
How lucky I am to live in this place,
Where we have such a diversity of race.

If there is one thing that this country has,
Itâ??s that we are all neighbors through good times and bad.
We have so many different personalities, so many different ways,
And with Freedom we are allowed to express them every single day.

Even though there is terrorism and hate,
We are still free today because we have love and faith.

America has lots of things and freedom is just one,
But without Freedom, there would be none.
From the mountains of Montana to the Florida shores,
Over all the places in between, our mighty eagle soars.

If I left America I would not miss the bubblegum,
The thing I would miss is a thing called freedom.

    Thank you Jessica for the comment on my poem "If I could" I appreciate your honest opinion. However, keep in mind that this poem was just wrote in a joking matter. Trust me, when you are in a 3 year relationship like I have been, and he does you feel like doing a heck of a lot more than tying his shoelaces together!
    Again...thanks for your comment. I appreciate it. And good luck on your writing. You are a talented young writer :)
