America: In All Its Beauty

America

Home of free and brave

Everyone 'loves' America

But why are we so divided?

 

If America is beautiful,

why do we pollute?

If America is great,

why do we hate?

IF America is free,

why do people live in fear...

 

I love my homeland

but what I miss most...

the freedom to be who I am

Without having to hide...

 

I want to defend my country

But the majority doesn't want me

"Be a housewife, that suits you,"

I want to defend my country

 

America, in all its Beauty

Isn't so beautiful anymore

What Lady Liberty stands for 

is what I want to fight for...

 

Opprotunity
