Independence Day July 4th: An Alphabet Soup Freedom Poem

Updated on July 23, 2011

Art of the poem draws the freedom I love


Believing who ride on the wings of a dove



Captured in words as free as a kite


Delicately expressed to the winds take flight



Eternal in thought as I reach high above


Floating to freedom on the wings of love




Gently I rise in the breeze of the sky


Hoping this day will bring honor on high



Individual works from goodness abound


Justice to those who stand on the ground



Kindness be shown as simple as pie


Like the bursts in the air on the fourth of July




Master the one in the depth of your soul


Now is the time speaks volumes of whole



Opportunity knocks, let open your heart


Prepare yourself for a brand new start



Quiet the tempest whose love he has stole


Rights are yours to pursue, that's the goal




Stay wide awake to the sacred call


Timeless in nature, there's love for us all



Understand freedom is an internal affair


Visibly in need of worthy repair



Welcome the light that breaks down the wall


Xtra love will pour in as the dark night will fall




You've heard the story from the art of a poem


Zealously embrace wherever you roam

      I know i'm not late to appreciate such a patriotic poem. No longer be intimidated. Poets arise when love explodes from within and desires expression unto the world. Keep them coming poet Dotties:)

      How about you Sis! Can you write a poem? :D I did a google "what is the easier type of poem to write" and its return answer was a rhyming poem so coupled with Shirley's Alphabet soup poem suggestion is how this poem became a little miracle, hahaha.

      Aha...I know inspiration will strike and you will find yourself being led to write another poem soon.... LOL maybe something about miracles (since you just mentioned it or maybe even about angels.) Hahaha It is beautiful to celebrate independence as our reminder to freedom! :-) Hugs...

      Thank you anjali for stopping by. I'm happy you enjoyed the poem. Have a great 4th of July.

      Hello Sis Michelle, I'm glad you got a chance to read my poem because it's probably the only one I'll write on hubpages unless a miracle occurs which I do believe in miracles. Hope you had a wonderful independence day! hugs...

      Thanks Charia for that piece of information.   So I will have to say I hope you had an enjoyable Independence Day on June 12th in the Philippines. 

      It's good to learn something new every day!  Thanks for coming by!

      Great Poem. We are also celebrating our independence day on the 4th of July; that is before it was moved to 12th of June. There were some who still opposes the change until now. They are claiming that it was only on July 4, 1946, when the United States granted it independence that the Philippines became politically free as a country. Anyways I just remember because of the date. Happy 4th of July! =)

      Thank you very much sharongail for the nice comment. It is also nice for me to have a new visitor. I'm on my way over to check out your hubs. Thanks for stopping by.

      Hi G-Ma and thanks. I really appreciate your comment. Writing poems is something I never do and so it was quite intimidating to publish. Love and hugs to you and a wish for you to have the best 4th holiday ever.
