Remember Freedom’s Fields (poem)

Updated on February 3, 2016

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

      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?

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

      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?

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