am your Flag
I was born on June 14th, 1777.
I am more than just cloth shaped into design.
I am the refuge of the World's oppressed people.
I am the silent sentinel of Freedom.
I am the emblem of the greatest
sovereign nation on earth.
I am the inspiration for which American Patriots
gave their lives and fortunes.
I have led your sons into battle from Valley Forge
to the bloody swamps of Vietnam.
I walk in silence with each of your Honored Dead,
to their final resting place beneath the silent
White Crosses, row upon row.
I have flown through Peace and War,
Strife and Prosperity,
and amidst it all I have been respected.
My Red Stripes....symbolize the blood spilled
in defense of this glorious nation.
My White Stripes....signify the burning tears
shed by Americans who lost their sons.
My Blue Field....is indicative of God's heaven
under which I fly.
My Stars....clustered together, unify 50 states as one,
for God and Country.
"Old Glory" is my nickname,
and proudly I wave on high.
Honor me, respect me, defend me
with your lives and fortunes.
Never let my enemies tear down from my lofty position,
lest I never return.
Keep alight the fires of patriotism,
strive earnestly for the spirit of democracy.
Worship Eternal God and keep His Commandments,
and I shall remain the bulwark of peace
and freedom for all mankind.
I am your Flag.
