Tom B., 9th Grade & Emmy Y., 9th Grade
Soldiers go off to fight
For what our country believes is right
They fight and die
And everyone will mourn and ask, Why?
But if they were still here
They would say do not fear
Because I fought for your freedom and rights
And died so you can have a house with lights.
Soldiers sacrifice everything they own
To go protect and live their life alone
They lay down everything, even their lives
To protect their sons and daughters and wives.
Be grateful for the country you live in
Because it would not be possible without these brave men
Soldiers don't want anything for what they do
They just say that they do it for me and you.
Inspiration sparks a flame
A flame that lights and can never be contained
It lights our way through darkest days
It helps us grow and learn to never say no
Inspiration isn't always easy to come across
Even if it's small, it's never a loss
It makes stupendous paintings and musical masterpieces
It sends us to our happiest “beaches"
It helps us to accomplish our goals
It lightens and cleanses our souls
Inspiration is all you need
If you believe, you will be freed
