My American Creed

My Poem about my American Creed

By Benji from Bay High School in Ohio

In the land of stars and stripes, our American Creed,

A claim for freedom and justice, indeed.

Let history be our guide,

The Constitution, our national pride.

Civil rights movements, courageous and strong,

Suffrage for women, a battle prolonged.

Equal opportunity, a dream we chase,

Evidence aplenty in our diverse workplace.

With reasoning sound and support in hand,

Our American Creed, a symbol that will stand.
