The Alamo

The Alamo

A mission small and old

Yet the souls that fought

Were strong and bold.


On February 23rd

Santa Anna started a fight

They fought all day and rested at night.


The battle raged on

It made feelings of fear, loss, and dread

At last, March 6th

200 soldiers lay dead.


This sparked a flame in Sam Houston’s eye

Then, at San Jacinto

He yelled his famous cry


“Remember The Alamo!”

A saying known far and wide

Where the win of Texas is never denied.


 a poem by Grant Truong
