American Soldier Poem

Poem by Tom Zart

It’s not a priest that gives us our freedom of religion
And it’s not a reporter that gives us our freedom of voice.
It’s not any judge, lawyer, politician, or teacher
But the blood of a soldier that has sacrificed by choice.

Our soldiers line up to be remembered
As the best of the best at their job.
They wish to be needed and depended on
To save all we love from the mob.

They risk their life and limb for liberty
Standing firm against evil unwilling to break.
To be part of something greater than themselves
They are willing to sacrifice whatever it will take.

    Help keep America free from demise
    Like so many times in history before.
    How many families have wept at Christmas
    As there sweethearts marched off to war?

    God is the source of every blessing
    As Washington believed as he would pray.
    Jesus is the reason we celebrate Christmas
    And all that we treasure night and day.

    Love, faith, trust and morality
    Save victims from future misdeed.
    After we suffer the outcomes of wrong
    By prayer we’re forgiven and freed.

    Our forefathers placed their trust in God
    To deliver us as a Godly nation.
    At Christmas we express our thanks for life,
    Jesus, freedom, country and creation.

    Every man, woman, child or creature
    We’re placed here by the miracle of birth.
    It’s up to us to fulfill God’s purpose
    For by commitment we reveal our worth.
