America (a poem)


America

Red, white and blue,

I pledge to you,

The strength of my bones.

To defend and protect

All that you hold dear.


Red, white and blue,

I pledge to you,

The wisdom of my mind.

To teach and enlighten

Other minds around me.


Red, white and blue,

I pledge to you,

The courage of my heart.

To stand up and speak

For truth and liberty.


Red, whit and blue,

I pledge to you,

The peace in my soul.

To guide and uplift

Your many lost souls.


Red, white and blue,

I pledge to you,

My Life,

My Liberty,

My Happiness.

For this One Nation

Under God.

That He may provide

Liberty and Justice

For All.
