"The colors of the pales (the vertical stripes) are those used in the flag of the United States of America; White signifies purity and innocence, Red, hardiness & valor, and Blue, the color of the Chief (the broad band above the stripes) signifies vigilance, perseverance & justice."

I PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE TO THE FLAG OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA AND TO THE REPUBLIC FOR WHICH IT STANDS...

I do not know about you but tears still build up in my eyes
when I recite the pledge of allegiance because It reminds
me of when I was just a child in this once great country of
ours, it was a time when we all played barefoot in the park
until the street lights came on without any fear of strangers
or being taken. It reminds me of our nations Bicentennial
in 1976 when our country stood tall and proud and we
celebrated its two-hundred-year-old birthday, it reminds me
of when I proudly served our country earning three honorable
discharges that hang on my wall today. It reminds me of…

Set the world on fire

Set the world on fire 
Way back when I was still in school around the age  of about oh let's just say it was a long time ago when  I was a lot younger then I am today, back when I still  believed in real true love, truth, justice, and even the  American way, when nothing but love and a childish  innocence was all that I had along with quite possibly  a slightly skewed sense of what was right and what  was wrong. I was only just a young man who happened  to believe still in what freedom is supposed to be and  the American flag, even the office of the President no  matter who at the time was filling it, I guess maybe  looking back I was what they called a dreamer always  believing I could for some reason or another make  things a little better but I know now back then my head  was stuck somewhere up in the clouds as it was filled  full up with unrealistic expectations of who or what I  would be when I grew up. but I know now all of those  thoughts were really more like delusions of grandeur,  just a c…

A chance to win

A chance to win
I never really ever get a chance to
win against love, always screwing
up I think it has me by a score of
at least ten to one, so if you are a
betting man which I am not then
you should place a big money bet
against me and you will double
your odds that love comes out on
top. For many years now myself and
love have gone round after round
always ending up in the same place
with me laying flat on the ground just
trying hard to stand back up usually
though I do not make it all that far
before love comes back just to kick
me hard in my gut wanting to make
sure that I never get back up. The
war will continue between true love
and I while I am losing battle after
battle as it beats the hell out of me
in hand to hand combat while we are
both locked away like those MMA
fighters in a cage on cable TV while
Viva Las Vegas has the option on me
coming in at a million to one odds in
favor that I just may win for once I
would not even take that bet but it is
the last round and I am fading fast
here I am up again…

When I Close My Eyes

When I Close My Eyes
I might not be able to in reality
actually, change this lost and
broken world and I might not be
able to change your made up mind
about leaving out of the door,
I might not be able to make you
love me just as much as I love you,
but I can still dream about It when
I go to bed at night and close my
eyes because that is where I am
living nowadays somewhere deep
down within my mind. That is
where we are still together and I
am yours forever and you are mine,
because that is where I go when I
want to escape all the violence in
this world and the hate that we see
everywhere around, it is a place
where you and I can feel safe together
walking hand and hand down the
quiet and peaceful streets late
at night after one of our many dates,
a place that is filled full with
laughter and joyful tears while we
are drinking margaritas on some
white sand deserted beach while we
are dancing at midnight in a warm
summer rain where we both are
always smiling we have forgotten
all our pain, a place where peace
and l…

Forever know the tune

Forever know the tuneWhen we meet then fall in love we
would like to believe that it will be
for an eternity, walking down our
life's paths holding hands until the
ends of time, however, we all know
that forever is just a metaphor for
sorry I do not love you anymore I met
somebody else and so on so forth
now I want a divorce and then you
realize that forever is just a lie, at
least most of the time, anyways. But
not always so I need you to know
that you are in reality, only a leftover
memory or just a little piece of my
past still breathing deep down inside
of me, almost like a song or melody
one you hear all over the place as it
seems stuck inside of your head all
day-long everywhere you go hearing
it either as a whistle or the tap of a
pencil or maybe even somebody is
humming the tune almost like the
musical notes are just floating along
right there in the air and even though
you may not remember all the words
to the song, I will always and forever
know the tune as it is always playing
over inside of my m…
