Freedom is... Poetry




A Poem About Freedom
by D. C.

Freedom is fair
Freedom is a Pledge of Allegiance
at a baseball game

Freedom is great
Freedom is a National Anthem
at Mount Rushmore

Freedom is noisy
Freedom is a person saying what they want
at the Twin Towers






A Poem About Freedom
by B. B.

Freedom feels risky
I see a National Anthem
in the United States
I hear an eagle
at the Twin Towers

Freedom feels fair
I see a flag flying high
In Heath
I hear a person saying what they want
In my head






A Poem About Freedom
by C. L.

Freedom feels great
I see an eagle
In my head
I hear a person saying what they want
In my class






A Poem About Freedom
by D. C.

Freedom feels risky
I see a person saying what they want
at the Twin Towers
I hear a flag flying high
in the United States
