Remember Freedom’s Fields (poem)

Remember fields where once we use to play

The freedom of our hopes was by our side

Quite strangely they seem different today

-

Well seasoned sunshine took us far away

We saw tomorrows dazed and starry eyed

Remember fields where once we use to play

-

There were ideals which we could not betray

Within our hearts was carried heroes’ pride

Quite strangely they seem different today

-

What children would enjoy soldiers would pay

So cherished dreams would never be denied

Remember fields where once we use to play

-

Confusion came and dreams have lost their way

The monuments and reason people died

Quite strangely they seem different today

-

And here we are to wander our dismay

As blood familiar comes with every tide

Remember fields where once we use to play

Quite strangely they seem different today

Yes, I remember, and they are quite different. Profound.

Up and more and sharing

God bless, Faith Reaper

Life as we knew it changed on that day in 2001.

Martin, a remarkable poem.

I feel sick when I think of our America and how far she has fallen.

I feel she is on her knees, today.

We were fed spoonfuls of sunshine, when we were growing up?

Things are so different now since 9/11. And our rights are always hanging in the balance now because of it.

Things are so different in many parts of the world, but they're not always bad, or do I just look on the sunny side?
