Comments about James Grengs
Freedom Is Never Free
They tell me
'Freedom is never free.'
I know that-
More than most realize.
Freedom cost us more
Than we should have to give.
Freedom cost us blood.
It cost us the lives
Of our fathers,
But while freedom is never free,
It has been bought at great price,
And so is a thing of great value.
We must defend it,
From those who would take it away.
The defense of our freedoms
Will cost us-
More than we wish to pay.
But we must pay, to defend,
For if we try to make freedom free,
You led me to believe that this love was forever
And I thought in my heart that you meant it, too
But now I don’t know if I really love you
I thought once upon a time that you were the one for me,
And the feelings may have been mutual,
But they just aren’t anymore.
So let go, even if you don’t want to,
