America the Not so Great

 

When you think of America,

You might think the land of the free.

The place where a man comes,

To give a better life for his family.

 

 

America is a country so divine,

It’s a place full of possibility.

Everywhere you turn,

There is a new opportunity.

 

 

When you think of America,

You might think the land of the free.

But how is that so,

When some can’t even walk the streets safely?

 

 

America has turned into a place gone wrong,

Its supposed to be the melting pot,

But now it’s a place where people feel like they don’t belong.

People keep pretending it’s something that it’s not.

 

Next time you think of America,
will you think the land of the free?
Because that is not so,
don't you see?

My country
