Reflecting on Independence Day: Haiku

Posted on

Font & Pen: Melissa Crockett Meske

Independence Day,

Celebrating our freedom.

Much sacrifice made.

————————————————————————-

Colonies unite,

Declaring independence.

A gain from much loss.

————————————————————————-

A country is born.

Blood stains on the battlefield,

True cost of freedom.

————————————————————————-

“Tyranny no more,”

But yet are we really free?

Once fought for, now fades.

————————————————————————–

One country’s heroes,

Defending all that they love.

Did they die in vain?

————————————————————————–
