The American Dream.....or Nightmare?

America is not great and the American Dream is fake. 

We are still fighting battles that should have been won over 100 years ago. 

Racism and slavery...it seems we have just given up

How about our education it's really bad

Down in the south it's truly sad 

Nobody wants to talk about the problems going on

But when you're ready to talk America I'll readily listen I'll give you my input and my opinion. 

But until you're ready to listen continue on the path your going 

And hopefully you don't get lost in all the twists and turns

Hope you find a new path  paved in gold 

That honestly believes America is great! Come and see! 

This poem is about: 
Me
My family
My community
My country
Our world
