Poet’s Corner: Spirit Freedom

Spirit Freedom


By Bonnie Marie Playle, Soldotna

On July 4, 1776 we separated from Great Britain

and became a sovereign nation.

As a nation were free; what an exultation.

That day so long ago,

when 56 men from 13 colonies;

signed the document of the nations’ policies.

The Creator gave some unalienable Rights,

such as, Life, Love and the Pursuit Happiness.

Without these, there’s lots of bitterness.

To have or not have a life,

is a God given right.

To love or to be loved,

none is greater than from Above.

To be in pursuit of happiness,

when found; filled is the emptiness.

These three are only a few of the rights we’ve been granted.

Centuries ago the seeds for success were planted.

As a nation, we’ve had our ups and downs,

there’s been some laughter, but definitely some frowns.

When the Creator is in the equation,

it can positively change any situation.
