My piece is about how we as Americans have freedom and how education and hard work leads to success.

Being American means

We have a better opportunity to education

It’s like a wide open door for us

That doesn’t require a key or a secret code to get in

Education is the main key to success

We, as Americans have a better chance to get

A job, scholarships, college education

We have a higher chance to reach the highest position in a job

Education helps us gain more money

Meaning life won’t be as much as a struggle

Being American also means freedom

We have the freedom to march while holding signs and shouting

To express what we believe in and get what we desire

We have the freedom to go around town

With a piece of paper, a clipboard, and a pen

Asking the people to sign their name

To demand a form of action from the government,

To change something we’re not happy with

We, as Americans, can have a pleasant life

If we work hard through dedication

We, as Americans, have the liberty

To do whatever we wish for

Being American means being brave, being proud of this country

And being confident that we will succeed

Being American is an honor, not a privilege
