Freedom is important to America.

By Knowledge from Burke High School in Nebraska

Red, white, and blue are colors that symbolize freedom

But man, often forgets who freed him

To be free you must fight back even if it may resort to violence

Which can lead to your silence

Show the children light to look up to so they develop a creed

Overtime people forget and develop a greed

People all around the world wants a world with peace

But everyone can’t be appeased

U.S is constantly going through this cycle and it won’t stop soon

If we continue to do this, we will explode like a balloon
