FIELDS OF BRAVE
Red, White, and Blue lead every battle
In the minds of young brave men.
Men whose youth not quite complete,
Yet adults in battle become.
Young ladies who we’ve yet to define,
Their place in battle, sign to serve.
Patriotism, love of country;
Risk their all to become our best.
Those to whom youth now past,
Experience will lead our victories.
Experience teaches new strategy,
When battlefields not same as past.
No one cares to see men die,
For even the noblest cause.
Battlefields become the fields,
Orchards of memorial cross,
Where men to victory fought.
Victory cannot be claimed,
Without sacrifice of willing men.
Country’s banner an inspiration,
Young mind image conjures.
Those who love their country more
Than self… will keep her free.
