Rated: E · Poetry · Spiritual · #1890036
Thankful for freedom's advocates, our military - the depth, breadth, and height of living.
Happily ingrained in the annals
Of our tried and true past,
While so deeply etched in the minds
Of businessmen and iconoclasts
In their never-ending struggles for validity and truth -
The proud and speedy stick continues to wave,
Blissfully rejoicing in the next
Heartfelt moment of joy and splendor,
Spiritually engaged in playing
That heavenly and unique musical instrument
Of our now historic and future lives.

For the legality of our souls lay
In the foundations of Godly truth
And the interminable, worldly sacrifices
Of countless generations of servicemen and heroes,
Swearing to protect a blissful and enduring legacy
Of freedom and hope
For successive, thankful generations

May God deliver us yet again
To our comfy and peaceful beds,
For yet another caring, quiet, and restful sleep,
Before that immense and final journey
To our blessed and sacred Homes,
Where the music of snow-white angels
Waves its eternal and heavenly baton.
