Since we are coming into November, right between Election Day and Veteran’s Day, I thought this would be a good time to post this poem I wrote a while ago. I would like to dedicate it to the soldiers and veterans who have defended this country and protected the freedoms that we hold so dearly.
Poem for US
Oh say can you see, by the dawn’s early light
Oh Lord, may this country not forget all its night
Night of toils and hardships and sorrows we bared
Oh Lord, may this country not forget how it cared
It cared for the wounded, those that had fought
Oh Lord, may this country not forget what it sought
It sought freedom and liberty and Biblical laws
Oh Lord, may this country not forget all its flaws
Flaws that threaten to break us, to tear us apart
Oh Lord, may this country not forget to take heart
Take heart that you’re with us as long as we fight
For Your truth, the foundations that gave us this right
Oh Lord, may this country not forget there’s a light.
Over the past few weeks, I have started about 3 or 4 entries; I just haven’t gotten around to finding a good way to end them. So, hopefully, I will get back to my original plan of posting an entry once a week. The ideas are all there, it’s just a matter of putting them into words. Don’t forget our veterans and soldiers this Thursday, November 11! Thank them for the sacrifices they have made and pray for their protection and strength.
