OLD GLORY

She stands tall for peace and freedom
She bears the scars of war
She drapes each silk-lined coffin
of every liberty forsworn.

She flies in the face of terror
She sails the seas of doubt
She is the symbol of the bearer
of justice, peace and hope.

Author’s Note: In honour of, and dedicated to the United States of America and her children who are the keepers of freedom’s dream.
