Star Spangled Life

Star Spangled Life

Darlene Reilley

 

Flags fly high across this boundless sky.

I’m just a writer with a simple dream

To stand with fellow patriots and live

a star spangled life.

 

Times are hard, belts are tight.

People bicker, people fight.

Separate, together.

 

Our people strived to make this nation

this home as great as it could be

for us.

 

Cease squabbling.

Stop destroying.

Use your energy for creation!

Build the next American Dream!

 

Better times will come when we pull together

And create a stronger vision of what this

Amazing place will be.

Let’s create something that lasts

two thousand years.
