I Applaud for Liberty

Together hands applaud,
Those that fight for Freedom.
My hands have held no weapon,
To defend my liberty.
Yet with these hands,
I strive to honor,
Those who risk their lives.
Fingers of my hands,
On keyboardwrite the poems.
Words express the honor,
For bravery on my behalf.
Liberty upon the soldier's back,
Freely given, kept for me.
Though I safely write a phrase,
I know to whom I owe.
First to God and then to those,
Who fight for liberty.
