Masters Of This Country 

Masters Of This Country 

Masters of this Country 
You think that you are free, but look and you will see.
We are not what you think we might be.
Governments steal and lie, and take a lot of lives.
Money and power rise above it all ,
we as people to them are very small.
No matter what our Government says to the people
they will come out on top. but as for us we will die and not stop.
Americans give there lives every single day in battle or in war 
The Government will always want much much more.
No matter how many lives are shed 
the Masters of this Country will always be fed.
The memories of our lost and fallen soldiers
Should receive the most highest honor for what they have lost,
most of the lives came at a cost.
Today I see our war vets homeless and hungry 
no Government help to be found,
just all the scars that they carry around.
Our Government says that we are free,
but look at how it has come to be..
There is nothing set up for those who gave it all
just a reminder how this Country will fall.
To all the soldiers, now and then may this world be grateful once again.
You are the ones who help us to be free,
but the Government is a snake hiding in the trees.
I give you all the praise and honor you all deserve,
may the sacrifice you did be heard.
We as Americans small and free will never stop dying for our Country....
Honor to all our Soldiers Now and Then..
God bless you all. Remember and never forget...

The stories I hear coming out of America regarding the treatment of war heros makes me sick, the land of the free, definitely not.

Powerful poetry Kay, well written.

Thank you friend, It is very upsetting how our soldiers are treated after serving our Country, I see so many war vets homeless and need medical care, but the funds come from donations of people who do care. The homeless shelters are so full it is a terrible thing, and the Government could care less as long as they get what they want. Much love my friend.

Awe thank you sweet friend, It sickens me to the bone how we treat our troops after they give there all to make this Country free,They are pushed to the back of the lines with no funds or help. It's hard to become a Normal Citizen again. Its very difficult to gain a self worth and dignity to face everyday in this world, so much anger and so much hate here, I wish there was more love and peace to go around for all people, much love friend, may your days be filled with so much love and happiness

Dear Kay,

It is so nice to meet you.  You have created such a powerful work here, telling it exactly as it is.  Our forgotten Veterans do all the "dirty work", while many of the politicians "clean up"on their sacrifices.  
Thank you for this heartfelt poem.

Peace and Love,
Larry xxx
