Am I Proud to be an American

I am proud to be an American

I cannot say this is true

 

They say it’s the land of the free

But its men are dying over seas

Fighting to protect its democracy

For those who discount their right to vote

 

The home of the brave

Where those with the bravery to be themselves

Are discriminated against

Because of who they love

 

Laws written by the people for the people

Whom are controlled by the government

 

With liberty and justice for all

Where all are losing the liberty of privacy

And justice is not served to all

 

The land of unless possibilities and dreams

Where honest men are losing the ability to rise up from poverty

 

One nation under God

That acts as nation of nations

 

I am proud to be an American

One day I hope this is true

This poem is about: 
My country
