American dream?

American proudness

Proudness of freedom

Freedom for the dream

Is America the mecca of freedom?

The proud can be broken as a kinder egg

When in the country of freedom

smoking weed is like a sin

The same eagle that means the freedom

And the American dream

The eagle flies to other countries

Spreading the great freedom in america

Even to restricted countries

The American freedom

Or even American dream

Is not more than an over exaggerated comparison

Where sometimes the dream provides the money and opportunities

Is mixed purposely with freedom

Here I’m not saying that america is not a great country

But questioning the freedom though 

More responses about "america"

Surprise Me
