Pearls and Dreams

If Freedom Was Lost
by Peggikaye Eagler

It's the little things
That make this country great,
The ability to walk freely
As we travel from state to state.

The things we take for granted,
Men gave their lives with pride.
We stand attention and pledge,
Taking our liberties in stride.

What would we do
If our freedom was lost?
Would we stand and fight
Knowing our lives are the cost?

When we look at the flag,
And sing our songs loud,
Do we realize the honor
To sing and stand proud?

We argue and fight each other,
Who's rights are trampled today?
Our lives so full of freedoms,
We forget the need to pray.

Is our country the same,
If God we set aside?
Can we have true freedom,
Dependent on American Pride?

To the flag we pledge,
Our commitment and strength.
But it's our faith in God,
That gives the country it's life's length!
