"A Country's Independence"

St. Joan of Arc Catholic School
St. Louis City, MO

Stories tell us we are divided
and the Bible says we are all united.

Pick and choose the choices we make,
keep a promise we start to break.

Solely focus on being accepted
only for us to be rejected.

We have worked hard for the freedom we own
to take our power and be dethroned.

Take advantage of being so free
oh, but can’t you see?

So fragile it is in a world so limited
galaxies away, we are privileged.

Fighting and hurting is all we have done,
centuries of this but no one has won.

Put down your weapons and embrace your freedom
today we live with purpose, reason.
