American Flag

A Poem By AmandaLC // 9/4/2008

I hear everything from the big city to the rural country
I smell fresh and polluted air
I see military men and women saluting me
I taste the sweet aroma of the country I am here for
I feel loyalty, as well as hatred
I watch ball games and races
I cry for those I cover in coffins
I say ‘never give up’ that’s why you have me
I make people cry when they think of what I stand for
I hope my pledge doesn’t change
I give love to those who will return it
I wave for God and my country

Love me, love my friends.
