4th of July D.C. woke up smiling. Today was the Fourth of July! She was so happy! It had been 237 years since the United States of America had become a country. She could hear America humming “The Star Spangled Banner” downstairs while he cooked breakfast. This was the only day of the year that he did. He was probably making waffles with strawberry syrup, whipped cream, and blueberries, so that even the waffles would be red, white, and blue. She stretched and got ready, slipping on an Old Navy flag shirt and jean shorts. She tied her hair back in a half ponytail and ran downstairs. When she reached the bottom of the stairs, she tackled America yelling, “HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY!”4th of July by ~littlemp
He laughed and hugged her, replying, “And to you too!” D.C. saw she’d been r
Every Book Opens a DoorA woman stood in a roomEvery Book Opens a Door by ~littlemp
From where she was standing she could see so many doors
Millions of doors to new worlds
Worlds where she could be a knight of the Round Table,
A wizard learning magic,
Or a young detective solving crimes.
Each world was diverse and unique.
She opened one door,
Into the world she had chosen.
When she was done with the world she had chosen
She shut the door.
And put the book back on the shelf.
Every book opens a door.
Birds of a FeatherBirds of a FeatherBirds of a Feather by ~littlemp
I am a bird with bright green feathers
There is no one like me that I’ve met
I’m alone in the world
My opinions are my own
I have no one to share them with.
As I fly along in the jungle of my home
I see a flash of bright green feathers
It’s another bird
How can it be?
I am the only bird like me.
I fly up to the bird with the bright green feathers
That looks like a reflection of me
I notice small differences
Eyes, beak, talons, and tail
I guess we’re not exactly the same.
I talk to the bird that looks just like me for hours on end
Some of her opinions are very close to mine
We both love the color green
We both love to sing
With other things that are similar as well.
However some of the things we don’t agree on
Like when is the best time to sing
She says morning is best
I believe it’s the evening
So there are some differences there too.
She is my friend despite the differences
Each of us is our own bird
I’m not alone anymore
The PledgeI pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, one nation, under GOD, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.The Pledge by ~littlemp
These words have power.
With our hand above our hearts we swear allegiance to the USA.
Some will take the Pledge lightly,
Saying it’s pointless,
Maybe even stupid.
I don’t take it lightly.
When I say these powerful words I think of what they mean.
I am pledging my allegiance to my country, vowing to uphold what it stands for:
And it’s for everyone.
This Pledge is not pointless, annoying, nor stupid.
We’re swearing our allegiance to a country that does have standards.
It’s our fault if these standards aren’t held as strongly.
Our country could be as strong as it was,
With our help to keep up the things that we know are right.
We don’t have to be an arrogant,
Idiotic nation as the world sees us,
If only we could keep the promise we made
