On Being Free

Somewhere in the vast expanse of
Earth, air, sea and sky
The fires born of freedom soar
And beg to question why.

And banners wave as flags unfurl
And anthems waft the air
As those who paid the price
Are eulogized with loving care.

The faithful find her favor
As the doubters weigh her fate,
While the soft sweet song of freedom
Lays her feast upon my plate.

And grateful for her kindness, 
And thankful for her grace,
And longing for her loving smile
To bless the human race;

To fill every corner with her light
And issue her decree, to
Give every heart a moment
To reflect
                   On being free.
