America The Great?

america the great?

america without a title

america who has neglected its people time and again

america who listens no to those in need but to those who pay the most

america who terrorizes its citizens while fighting for terrorisim

 

it kills its sons and daughters

the ones who cannot pay for medicine

the ones who speak up about their rights

the ones who do nothing but exist

the ones who only want to love or to be who they are

 

the red of its innocent

the white that oppresses

the blue that doesn't feel safe in your rearview mirror

 

america the great?

how great can we be when we are so terrible?

This poem is about: 
My country
