America The Great?

God Bless America

​Land that I love

The land of the free and the home of the brave

But is it really the land of the free?

I do love my country. I was born and raised in the state of California.

I believe if it the home of the brave because

The people want change.

It is not free because we are struggling

To live in the pursuit of happiness.

What makes us great?

America wants to be great but does not help us be great.

Americans are struggling.

It’s sad.

A college degree is necessary to live in this country

Yet it costs us so much time and money.

A college education should be free because it will help grow

The country in the economy and being successful

With a lot of people earning a college education.

I value education and learning.

I believe if every is given a free education,

This country will be back at number one.

This country will be

The land of the free and the home of the brave.

This poem is about: 
Me
My family
My community
My country
Our world
