Yellow, Black, White and Brown Stars Forever by Bob Atkinson


Stars and Stripes Forever
(c)2012 Bob Atkinson
forever we have soldiered on
beyond battles for all to see
bravery and willingness displayed
to idolize our country's dreams

saved for humanity, a partnership
that which we created strong
a way of life delivering pride
in culture and diverse throngs

we see a world of harmony
a life with quiet progress
building new horizons bold
not exploding us to darkness

from south, from north
from east and west
from countries far and near
they came to find a better way
found new friends right here

a mixture of ideas and stories
those who traveled far agreed
to bring to us all their energies
melding with our father's dreams

mold it all to a country proud
one which was by all made
to become that bold life's story
of history's proudest page

and if we ever fight again
pray we fight with all mankind
on our side, no enemies
as we have seen the signs

our enemies become our friends
so we sit down to peace again
sharing all we are given
giving all to them we can

of progress with our brothers
no fighting against those opposed
who are a little different from us
battle flags will fly no more

we see a world of harmony
a life with quiet progress
building new horizons bold
not exploding us to darkness
