America The Great? America, don't hate.

"Make America Great Again!" It's the slogan we all hear. 

"Americans are full of hate!" from the mouths of people that live here.

Many years of suffering and depression. And all for what?

As many see it, our country is still stuck in an economical rut. 

"Black Lives Matter" is the word of the street 

but say that all lives matter, see if you can take the heat. 

War is something that has became a norm of society's conversation

but don't dare to ask about others political party affiliation. 

Our voting system seems to be the biggest joke of all,

if it keeps moving this way we're bound to fall.

The streets are full of people shouting and cussing, call it a protest.

Walking and disobeying laws as if it were their conquest. 

There is nothing wrong with standing up for what you believe.

But don't let those with unfair views decieve. 

An innocent face is so hard to disifer when society knows how to set up a fake display.  

Being two faced is no longer a divider, even your own friends could be the one to betray.

If you ask me, we as a country have some improving.

Are these problems an easy fix job or is there a much bigger battle were losing? 

Now back to the main question, is it truly America The Great?

I'll leave that up to you to debate.

My country
