the land of possibility

Liberty And Freedom

Liberty And Freedom (Photo credit: BramstonePhotography)

known as the land of liberty and freedom
of new enlightened ideas and innovation
born of a unique revolution against monarchy
and tested in a civil war to stay one nation

an almost reluctant democratic super power
finally forced into the second world war
by the sneak bombing of Pearl Harbor
so that a time of isolationism was no more

consisting of immigrants from all over the world
searching for freedom of religion or a better life
wanting to escape to the land of possibility
the land where equality of opportunity is rife

    Most definitely a red, white, and blue poem! I like the elements that you built the poem around. Very nicely conveyed picture of America.

      Thanks, I felt I had to write something about America to counter my previous poem, “no common ground”. The hardest part was selecting what elements to include, since I didn’t want to write more than three or four stanzas. 🙂

        However you made your decision on what to include, it served you well. It is very good.
