Identity


Who are we?

What are we?

Where did we come from?

When we got here?

How?

Questions Americans need to ask themselves.

Before we say the word IMMIGRANT to anyone,

Where did we ALL originate?

Last I check no one here in America, race started here.

We came from the other side of the world.

Why did we?

To follow the herd for food,

To spread the word of God,

To get rich quick for Gold,

And to actually have what is called freedom.

But we forgot.

Yes we are Black,

Yes we are White,

Yes we speak Spanish,

Yes we look Asian,

Yes we are we,

United yes we are,

In this beautiful land of ours.

So stop the hatred,

Because no one,

No matter how you look,

Is better than anyone else.

Land of the free, home of the brave,

Once stated before.

So if he or she don't belong,

You and me can't stay long,

No matter what, we got to stay strong.
