 ABOUT
YVON 
I've been writing for over 40 years. I enjoy meditation and am interested in both western and eastern spiritual practices.

Warning: The author has noted that this contains the highest level of violence.
Tears of heaven
Rain down as blood is shed
An anthem made of war cries
Praise the bleeding dead

Blood the price of freedom
For the home of the living brave
Invading other countries
With destruction on the stage

Many souls have fallen
War turns to the skies
Ignorance applauds this
When oil is the prize

Tears of heaven
Rain down from far and near
Old Glory fills the skies
With dead soldiers bloody tears

Author Notes
This is a difficult challenge as it can offend many Americans. I tried to match the image with a poem suitable for this flag. No offence, just a poem. Sometimes war is just what it is and this flag reminded me of war.
