Great?

America is considered to be one of the greats.

But how can it be great?

There are still people without food on their plates.

 

How can it be great?

There is still a high fear of the unknown rate.

And the more different you are,

The less likely you’ll ever make it far.

 

How can it be great?

There are still people who are treated differently because of their race

Even though America is their birthplace.

 

Though America is not quite great in every way

I am lucky to have been born here.

I pray that things will change one day and I am willing to wait

For the day that I can say, “America is truly great”.

This poem is about: 
My country
