year of 1776 that paper was decreed -
tired of oppression and wanted to be freed.
wrote a Declaration so the whole world would see -
"the home of the
brave and the land of the free."
signed that piece of parchment the leaders of this land -
divided they would fall but, together they could stand.
world lay before them untamed from shore to shore -
swore they would protect it if it meant going to war.
have been fought and many lives have been lost -
something so basic has such a high, high cost.
freedom is a luxury there's some would bind us all -
then, together, we can stand but divided, we will fall.
two hundred years have past by since that day -
of us celebrate in our own different way.
be proud and thankful pay our share of the cost -
freedom for granted for it easily could be lost.
keep our service men and women in your prayers.
