The United States of America
It is the beacon of opportunity
But I feel it is falling under bigotry and tyranny
I ask myself every day:
What Have We Become?
But I can't help but mentally shut down and run
Because to ask myself this question confronts American history
Which to people like me, has caused generation of misery
I love my nation
I love it to pieces
But it treats some of its people like they are common cretans
I wonder how we can change
I know it's possible
The real question; is how?
How when we're at the point where hearing about violence is just the norm
How when people of differing opinions can't have a civilized conversation
I. Don’t. Know.
What I do know is
If we changed before
Into what we are now
We can change once more
To become a more beautiful country than ever before.
