American Makeup

America

Built on the ideas for a perfect life

Freedom and Equality

Holds a bias for those who can plant their seed with a pale complexion  

Education

Places youth six feet below drowning in IOUs before the start of their lives

Love

Cannot be had unless it agrees with Adam and Eve

Generations

The next knows nothing but the past leaves without passing knowledge on how to survive

Health

People live longer and bills stack higher

Mental Health

Degrading along with the hopes of those who need help because of it

Awareness

A blind eye is turned toward suffering

Identity

Conformity is key

Self-love

Numbers on the scale and pretty girls on a magazine are more important

America

We only worry about those who match our criteria

 

This poem is about: 
My country
