    Heyyy~ This is a poem I came up with for school. It is about the freedom in the USA. Please rate. :)
    Let freedom rain
    Take away all the pain
    Let freedom ring
    All the people will sing

    Abraham Lincoln freed all the slaves
    So they could have their own ways
    Finally freed from their masters
    Who we call as bastards

    Martin Luther King had a dream
    To unite all the different teams
    So no one would be separated
    And feel like they are hated

    Rosa Parks sat on a chair
    Waiting for someone to care
    At last, she got taken away
    And so no one felt okay

    Susan Anthony and [Name](Forgot her name XD) campaigned
    And all the rights women gained
    We are now able to vote
    And no more need to hope

    Thomas Jefferson made the Declaration of Independence
    And attracted the citizens' attendance.
    We all have rules and rights
    Which we need to follow every night

    Let freedom rain
    Take away all the pain
    Let freedom ring
    And all the people will sing~

    please rate my poem good or bad all comments appreciated

    Cotton wool clouds, splay cotton wool shrouds
    Over roof tops, streets and fields.
    It's a magical sight, to see a landscape so white
    Once repressed joy and fun it now yields.

    Snowballs we throw, with the fresh fallen snow
    So cold are our feet, hands and cheeks.
    But nobody cares, God's answered our prayers
    Let's hope it snows for weeks upon weeks.

    There are bells to be rung, along with carols to be sung
    It's Christmas time once again.
    Huddled pensioners whine, as they sip their mulled wine
    Saying 'next year let's drink this in Spain.'

    Past Christmas' we relive, through home movies we sieve
    Laughing at how much we've all changed.
    Their faces a treat, when they ask for the receipt
    Saying 'I love it, I just need it exchanged.'

    But this Christmas card scene, it's not worth a bean
    Without someone special with whom you can share.
    Keep close all you hold dear and cherish each year
    Because memories such as these are too rare.

    “Mothers Are”

    Mothers are the ones, who bring us into the world,
    Mothers are the ones who teach us right from wrong.
    Mothers are there for us when we need her any time, day or night,
    To help us feel better.

    Mothers are there when we are scared or when we feel alone,
    And she is there when we are happy to share in our joy.
    Mothers are there for us when we are feeling down,
    She helps us feel better.

    Mothers are the ones, who love us,
    Even when we think no one else does.
    She is Always by us anytime, all the time, no matter what
    Even if only in our hearts!

    “Sweet 16”

    Now you are 16, Nothing behind you but your childhood!
    Now you are truly a teenager.
    Look forward to see what the future may hold for you, Can have in store for you.
    Leave no possibilities behind you; Anything is possible if you put your Mind and Heart into it!

    “My Little Queen”

    Let no one tell ‘NO’
    You can be anything you may or want to be,
    Because now you have the world in front of you,
    The world can and will offer you anything.

    “Happy Sweet 16”

    In The Comfort of My Dreams II
    I close my eyes, in the comfort of my dreams;
    Walking through the land, next to the stream.
    Here I sit, remembering the past;
    Wondering how long, will my love for you last?

    I hear the bird's song and the rustling of leaves;
    Tears come to eyes and it's you I can't see.
    The sky so soothing, with its whites and blue;
    Is there someone, somewhere, that can give me a clue?

    Though comfort is welcome, in the memories I hold;
    Without you beside me, my body grows cold.
    The pain swells deep, growing heavy at my core;
    Searching for ways to move on, to survive this war.

    For I find myself alone, my dreams torn apart;
    Forced to move on, my futures now dark.
    Was once an escape here, this land in my head;
    Where I tell you I love you, but the real world-goes unsaid.

    I inhale deeply and it's your fragrant I smell;
    Memories cascading, how do I escape this hell?
    My dreams are suppose to be, a place with no pain;
    But now they find me, simply going insane.

    So how do I stop loving you and get you out of my head;
    Break the ties that bids us, how do I cut this thread?
    For like the mountain I see, in the climate of my dreams;
    I stand alone for all time, for now as it seems.

    As I walk here alone, remembering my past;
    The sounds of nature's call, no longer do last.
    Trees have grown silent, standing ever so still;
    The air a dead clam, as the land becomes ill.

    Looking this way and that, and to my eyes I see;
    Cherished moments in time, being torn at the seams.
    The sun that once shined here, lasting all through the day;
    Replaced by darkness, as the land begins to decay.

    The warmth that blanketed me, and held me so tight;
    Has slipped away forever, with the coming of night.
    A matter of time, for all good things come to an end;
    Love ever lasting, who said this and when?

    For the love that you had, was turned off one day;
    Pretending for years, and then pulled away.
    Blinded by love, for I wanted to believe;
    That my bride was beside, how naive.

    So with eyes closed, and heavy with heart;
    Our roads cross no more, they stand apart.
    You have moved on, with seemingly no remorse;
    You did this to me, long before our divorce.

    As time moves on, I hope and pray;
    My love for you, will simply go away.
    But as it stands now, the pain is too great;
    Heart ripped apart, for I lost my soul mate.

    So in this darken void, my prison to be;
    I weep alone with thoughts, of you and me.
    Laughter and love, now a thing of the past;
    Love ever lasting now shattered, like a glass...
