The Scars And Stripes - Poem by Mary Ryan

The stars and stripes
Reflect my freedom
In this land
I live each day

But the scars and stripes
Have bought my freedom
Christ's death
The only way

As people live and die
For freedom
In the USA
And lands so far away

But for me
Eternal freedom
Is a price
Only One could pay

To the stars and stripes
I pledge allegianceI
n the land
That I reside

But I owe my all
to the scars and stripes
For one day
In heaven I'll reside
