Freedom’s Breeze

Not some fabric of three colors
of stars and stripes
to be hoisted and flown
in freedom’s breeze

Not some patch or lapel pin
Worn over or near the heart
Clothing or banner or marketing
To sell or praise
Freedom’s breeze

Thrown down, trodden underfoot
spit upon or burned
in freedom’s breeze

Though no flag flies or trumpet beckons
It cannot be destroyed or forgotten
It cannot be killed
For forever beats and pulses every heart
The world over
For freedom’s breeze

Not the bosom for patriot’s heart to swell
Or draped upon the full measure paid of devotion
Not an emblem to be feared nor revered
Nor symbol, for some anthem it inspired
No icon for bravery’s home’s or free land
in freedom’s breeze

None of these or so the much more, can define
Not what it is, but what it represents
In all the nations of the world
No other has written their constituted purpose
Rights such as life and liberty and the pursuit of happiness
unfurling in freedom’s breeze
