We Have All But Forgotten

We walk our streets without a thought of all

The lives that have been lost

Lives that have been sacrificed for a freedom

That we enjoy while those who fought

Are forgotten.


We spend endless hours taking for granted

All the rights and freedoms we enjoy

Without giving a second thought to those

Who stood up for an ideal that somehow we

Have forgotten.


We stand now in the streets protesting our rights

Rights that have been distorted by the rewriting

Of the morals and values of our country

What does it mean to fight for a cause of worth?

We have all but forgotten.
