America, land of the free
Home to so many people,
Where all believe it to be as we are told it is.
But are we truly the great?
America, a place we are told we can be open
Yet we are shunned when we speak our minds
We're given freedom of speech
Yet if what we say is spoken out we are hushed
America, Home of the brave
Yet those in power hide from the majority
Those who are weak are ignored, forgotten.
We fight for change, but history only repeats itself
America, blind to true problems,
Yet wanting to shine light on all
People of all ages, races, genders, and more
Wanting to be heard, seen, known,
Only wanting true freedom for all,
Not a false hope to happiness
