Seen but not Recognized

Madi Gean

It hangs in every classroom,

in every veterans front yard,

and at every police station.

It means the world to every U.S. soldier,

However, it is often taken for granted.

50 white stars that pop off

a navy blue background

that are captured by stripes

with a peppermint pattern.

It represents our nation's freedom

and independence.

It has consumed

the nation's darkest hours

and brightest days.

For the American Flag lives in all of us.
