I

 

Pursuing dreams,
First steps

Beckoning opportunities,
Across oceans

Proud sacrifices,
Glistening eyes

 

*

II

 

Anxious freedom,
Fertile memories

Loyal sentiments,
Burning dedication

Liberating happiness,
Humbled notions

 

*

III

 

Defending values,
Honoring liberty

Blood brothers,
Family bonds

Tranquil tragedies,
Balancing obligations

Wistful reflections,
Longing hearts

 

*

IV

 

Thankful faith,
Expatriate love

Political fervor,
Distracted outrage

Whimsical curiosity,
Restless schadenfreude

Guilty contentment,
Righteous equality

Nurturing lives,
Thirsty hopes

Global citizens,
Rejoicing fortunes

 

*

V

 

Home soil,
Vulnerable thoughts

My home,
My country

 

*

VI

 

Six feet under,
Hand still on heart..
