Land of free

Land of free

A Poem by Angela Talbert
"

This is a song...LYRICS

"

 

In this land of free
the brave walk right by me
and I stand here waiting
waiting to be
 
And the black folds in
a thick curtain
although I fear the end is near
there’s none in sight
 
She cries
pulls the cover up
she tries
but it’s not enough
and the times
the times
are so tough
but we pull
we pull
the covers up
 
Shots in the air
a flag passed down
one mothers despair
one more  in the ground
 
and the rod and the staff
cannot make it right
it’s not stars and stripes
its human life
 
She cries
pulls the cover up
she tries
but it’s not enough
and the times
the times
are so tough
but we pull
we pull
the covers up

This song came to me out of nowhere... there is a melodie in my head but I cannot write music so hopefully you can find it on your own.

The repetition is interesting and works well. But, I think this would be stronger if the lines were a little longer. Also, it would be easier to read if you didn't commence each line with a capital and added punctuation.
