Free to be me
Free to walk the walk
Free to talk the talk
Free to cry and Free to sigh
Free to be lifted on high
Free to pray
Free to laugh
Free to see and be seen
Free to express
[poetry nonetheless]
Free to sing
And set the church bells to ring
Free to complain
Again and again
Free to compliment
Free to repent
Free to own
Free to praise
Let our voices all be raised!
Free to die
For this, our USA, our country.

Nan, thank you for your kind words. If ever you should want to pass on any words that you find interesting from my submissions, I trust that you and anyone else in this forum would not change the format, but simply pass them on to friends, family, students, whomever, as I do.
