Independence Day

A sky alight with hope remembers
Those who walked ahead
Those whose pride lit up the embers
Burned the coals of dread
Those who founded one great nation
Signed with ink and prayer
That men would live in contemplation
One day we’ll get there
As we celebrate the glory
Wrought by long dead hands
Let’s add our voices to the story
Of this beloved land
