Message From the Fourth
Firecrackers pop and light up the sky, a gift from the Chinese, so long ago,
The Lady stands tall in the harbor. a gift from the French, and still, to glow.
All came from Europe and Asia, about the world, as from India's balmy shore,
they created a nation, and in unity, walked through the country's open door.
In unity there is such a strength, a powerful force, and beyond any to compare,
to be no destruction, or falling down, as a country's people show that they care.
No factions within, nor those from without, can deter, never taking a full control,
in the land of freedom. where its people are the source, the human spirit to extol.
The Fourth of July is our message to the world, and our flag of freedom, to unfurl,
amid the swarming of life, and the stars in the night, in our galaxy, as we all do swirl.
It's a human need for us all to succeed, as the United States, then serves to show,
putting down the tyranny of dictatorships, while giving this world the seeds to grow.
A day for the world to celebrate, in the name of freedom, and a love we all may share,
showing then, the wonderful life, to be aspired, and for a future, that we shall so spare.
Fireworks light up evening skies, revealing a testament, to be held in our hearts, so dear,
we shall walk in unison, to our futures, so bright, putting aside all our worry and fear.
