Freedom is not free

There is a price we pay for freedom
for it is not truly free but rather paid
by contributions of veterans to buy
our liberty
As their blood drains from their body
and runs like a river through the grass
Over the years it's forgotten, was is
placed in our past.
I don't think we all realize the importance
veterans play as they voluntarily serve
America each and every day.
We should honor the veterans for they
act like a shield protecting us from danger,
keeping America healed. So if you would
take a second to commemorate you will
instantly see we owe veterans our gratitude
for they are the reason we are free.

God bless all our service men and

women who serve to keep us free.
