Freedom circa 1976


There is nothing better to me
than living completely free.
A world without threat of war
is all I want, nothing more.
So let’s spread freedom
from kingdom to kingdom
and love across the sea.
Soon this world may soon become
the perfect place to be.

That is the edited version of a poem I wrote in High School, circa 1976. Here is the original:

I don’t remember what class it was for, obviously not English class, judging by the spelling. I did get an A on it. I found this paper going through some boxes. Seems an appropriate post for Memorial Day.

Thanks to all who gave the ultimate for our freedom.
