American Heros
Author: Leah06


You fly planes
Kill for fun
Murder your people
With your own gun.
I won't let you continue
Even if I have to do it by hand
I can't let you steal anymore lives
For all America I will stand.
We are not afraid
There is an answer within the soul
We will fight together
America as a whole.
We will stand together
We cast our fears aside
You can run if you wish
But you can't hide.
Red is for the heart
Of the Americans strong
It is also for our youth
Who sing our countries song.
White is the color of hero
And everything they do
It is for our faith
When in war with you.
Blue is for our strength
When all America will stand
When we fight as a whole
Together hand in hand.
We won't let you win
Even after all those who died
We will stand together
Forever American pride!

This one down in history in my book

It is a treasure not only to me and Americans but the world should stop the murderous ways. We need to come home to tend our own and not have to go here or there for their terrible acts against their own or others around a world that needs to live in Peace. I would like them to learn the definition of that word! World oppion of Americans is an insult to efforts and I get so upset(not a little)! I have not had time to post anymore of my writings but I find the time to read from a great website. Thanks to Becky for allowing me to come back. Thanks you for warming my heart and mind so much.

You can feel the power in this work.


I can feel the power in this poem as if, you pounded on the key-board with a sledge hammer to creat each thought! Very good work, powerful.

ya know...i know that was a sincere comment Martin, but reading it gave me the visual.....and i saw a ton from Who Framed Roger Rabbit grabbing that yellow cartoon hammer and pounding the hell outta my keyboard....gave myself a laff........

but yes, her poem is that powerful to make it seem as though she pounded her heart out to make it perfect

Tarna- Its not to right the wrongs its to pick them up when they themselvs dont have the strength. Im glad you liked this one.
