There is a flag flies in the wind

Red, white and blue and golden fringed

And from my window every day

Its mighty emblem is displayed.

Sometimes its folds blow in the breeze

And wave to all the leaf-filled trees

Its symbol shouting freedom first

With such a sympathetic voice !

Memory is a powerful tool

Not governed by sets of standard rule

A list of items hidden away

To safely keep for another day,

The human mind, a knowledge beyond

May save the secrets of which we’re fond,

A shadow here or a whisper there

Moments in time we chose not to share

These are the treasures that we may find

When we have courage to speak our mind !

We are the home of heroes, every color, every size

But who are those now making this effort to minimize ?

It’s been our own courageous patriots who’ve built this land

A place where citizens can work together hand in hand

This homeland where the people have the freedom and the choice

To fly the flag, sing the song, say the pledge or raise their voice !

Have you seen the trouble we are in

Our world’s tilted and in a spin

We’re upside down, we’ve lost our way

There’s nothing left for us to say.

We are not what we used to be

Our freedom is no longer free

The world we’ve known has disappeared

Transformed by lies and avid fear !

We’ve heard the tales, we know them well

The stories that the legends tell

Of heroes great both old and new

Who did the best that they could do.

They built this nation bright and strong

Accepting all who would belong

And turned our land into a place

Where freedom thrives in love and grace !

Hear now the battle marchers’ roar

Sending our children off to war

If not for them who will it be

That gives their life to keep us free ?
