Here is another poem by my friend, Alex Phillip Lain.  he wrote it over the weekend of the 4th of July and posted it today.  🙂  I hope you all enjoy it as much as I did!

Red and White, Blue and Proud,
Flying high against the Clouds!
To live free, will always be best,
Give us liberty, or give us death!

The blood of patriots, the pain of the oppressed
The cry of the innocent, the screams of brutal death
All interwoven into this flag, that we might be free,
Their suffering combined in patriotism for our liberty

Liberty our cause, our freedom our own,
Though blood must be spilt, our nation our home.
Not of this world, Christians we claim and we are,
Yet our nation our gift from God, every stripe and star

To die for merely a cause, is to die for nothing,
But to die for your God, is indeed to die for everything
So let us stand up then, for freedom and for the Lord!
And should treachery again raise its head, again draw our swords!

Red and White, Blue and Proud,
Flying high against the Clouds!
To live free, will always be best,
Give us liberty, or give us death!

Please comment and let me know what you think.  🙂
