[Haiku set dedicated to armed forces]

The land of the Free
Who fought to get us this far?
Bring them home safely.

They’ve given their lives
To make sure we have freedom
Honor these brave souls.

Actions over words
Above all you must love all
Can’t just talk the talk.

Bravery and strength
Men and women show their love
For the Red, White, Blue.

The author's comments:
I wrote this as a tribute to all the men and women who serve or have served in the United States' armed forces. The do so much for us, and i hoped to pay tribute in some small way, though i could never fully express my level of pride and gratitude.
