July 4th (Fib) Happy Birthday USA!

July 4, 2010

On July 4th, ’76
A country was born
Searching for
Freedom
Found
Within
The people
Who made it their choice
To risk all to begin anew

      Heck, on a lesser note – we were one of five houses (out of 15) on our street who had a USA flag flying on July 4th. How sad that even the little things are forgotten.

      God Bless America!

    How apropos! “…to risk all to begin anew.” I’m afraid there are not too many like that in today’s society, and those that are are hampered by our career politicians.

    Hi Pete, I’m not an American – but when I read this words
    “The people
    Who made it their choice
    To risk all to begin anew”
    I can feel the pioneering spirit rising – view words which say a lot
    So nice to meet you!

    hey its Pete…thought i would pop by as i was summoned above..we dont do 4th July over here wants the point in celebrating the loss of a colony LOL….your verse reminds me of my feelings about new years eve…complete strangers that throw their arms around you, kissing you and wishing you a happy new year, but 5 minutes later pulling a knife and taking your savings..life is full of hypocrisy…

    Beautiful lines Tim…

    The concept of freedom as something to be found within when we do away with the anchors and set sail, has been very well captured in your short poem…
