Fighting For Freedom

Poem By Daniel Peek

Soldiers are people,
Men and women too,
Soldiers are people,
Just like me and you.

They don't have a special talent,
Nor a special skill,
They just do what they have to,
Even if it means to kill.

They fight for me,
They fight you,
They fight for freedom,
And the Red, White, and Blue.

They fight, fight, fight,
I hope they'll win,
But if they lose,
It will be a sin.

So love the USA,
Love the soldiers too,
You may not know it,
But they die loving you.

Somewhere In The Night

Somewhere in the night a child cries,
A woman weeps and someone dies.
Somewhere in the night, humanity hides.

When You Love Someone

When you love someone so deep inside,
It seems like it's so easy to hide.
You've loved him for so very long,
You would think he could do no wrong.


When you feel sad and betrayed
Who can you count on every single day?
When you feel lost and alone
Who will be there for you in every way?

On The Wings Of A Butterfly

Your friendship is special
Like the flowers that bloom,
Or when a butterfly emerges
From within its cocoon...

A Picture Of A House At Beit Jala

He has to return to shut that window,
it isn't entirely clear
whether this is what he must do,
things are no longer clear
