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?
