- What Matters
My ears will not stop ringing.
The bombs explode, women and children
cry and men fall. The ringing of metal
and bodies crashing into the earth fill my ears.
I leave the front and return home
but still the ringing will not stop.
I close my eyes to sleep but hear
ringing, ringing, ringing
The sun rises behind her,
making her torch glow.
His eyes ignite as the boat
leads his family to their new home.
And now I dream of all those
who were killed, mangled, and mutilated
-all those who never returned home.
When the dream ends the ringing doesn't,
the white boat sinks under the ring of fire,
while bullets pierce their way through planes,
but retreat is still not an option.
He walks the gold lined streets,
searching for hope.
The future of his family
depends on his determination.
The American Dream
The battle cries, the ricocheting bullets,
the sunken ships, and the fallen soldiers,
the lost lives and homes
are why the Liberty Bell rings.
