Poems and stories or anything wanted for the america ground
« on: March 16, 2010, 07:41:33 AM »
Hello. Have a look and google 'The America Ground' telling the story of when Hastings, east sussex, was declared as the twenty fourth state of America. If you like, write a poem or short story or any response you like, and the site (or sites; there are a few) will publish the ones they like on their website. This July the fourth sees the America ground aniversary celebrations in  Hastings. There is to be a commemorative coin minted, and an official folk song on dvd. I'm doing the creative writing submissions connected to the F-ish art gallery site, so put submissions on mwc for a crit by all means, but send your submissions to me and i'll try my best to get them published on our website. sideshunter.

This is a poem I wrote on Sept. 11th.  I think everyone can remember where they were that morning our Nation was under attack.
I am not even sure if this is the kind of subject you are looking for.  Everything I found when I searched the web lead me to this Poem I wrote a while back like I said.

AMERICA THE BATTLEFIELD!

This morning started out as a beautiful and normal day
But by 8:00 it suddenly turned into a day that will never be forgotten
Not one plane crash, not two
But four planes came crashing down to earth
Hitting our buildings like missles
Killing thousands, not hundreds
Thousands of innocent lives
Not one building destroyed but three and four
First our Trade Center not once but twice
Came crumbling to the ground
Then it was our Pentagon
Which burned all through the night
Not one life but thousands were sacificed
Who could have predicted such a massacre
And what is to be expected of the days to come
Hundreds are injured
And hundreds are unconfirmed missing and dead
Where is our justice
American's shouldn't have to live in fear
Simular to comicozies
The ones to blame took their lives
And took many more with them
Leaving America in termoil
Our country is left in morning
These victims you can't bring back
Children lost parents
Parents lost friends
Heroes died lending a helping hand
Their loved ones are sickened with greif
We are all left behind and expected to move on
Other countries laugh while we cry
They make a mockery of us while we grieve
There was nothing anyone could do
But sit and watch
As our fellow Americans were under attack
On our televisions we watched
As soot covered men and women ran for their lives
We stood by and watched
As people despiratly leaped from the tops of the burning buildings
We also saw the same buildings disinagrate before our very eyes
America has been attacked by terrorist
Someone has decared war on our nation
But throughout all the hiddious violence
America is still strong
And we are coming together
Our flags stand tall in remembrance
Of the ambitions we share
And the will to survive
America will not be intimidated
And the guilty will pay
Justice will prevail
And in the end
America will keep its pride
But first...more will die.

I am hoping even if you didn't like my poem that you will submit it and wish me luck.  And I will wish luck to you.

People like to write who have a passion for it. If you don't have a passion or you are not interested in term paper help stuff then it's better to remain in this field. This is good for you because in that way you can search out for your passion.

The kinds of people [good or bad] living under a national flag determine  the future of a country. You respect mine and I'll respect yours. This site is for sharing info,and posting poetry and stories. Thank you.

The World of Flags

We are the world of flags
Each of us are a small part
Of something bigger than we are

We come in many colors
And designs but we only
Fly highest in our home land.

Our colors and designs stand
For our country's land
It's people
It's government
And its ideals.
We have moved those who
Live beneath our colors
To joy
To courage
To sacrifice and tears.

We have draped the caskets
Of many men and women
Who died to protect
Our honor
From disgrace.

We are the world of flags
We wave proudly above our
individual Countries

As it should be........

In a world of peoples
Who cherish their liberty.

We fly over lands big and small
but even in the smallest land
we are equal to them all.
by Heartsong/ Jan Tetstone

Interesting the way the internet really works.   jt jt

And I wonder how many people will remember where they were when America pulled out of Afghanistan: the date,
Monday the 16th of August 2021 . . .
Believe you can and you're halfway there!
