Dear America

Dear America,

Thank you for your outrageous attitude. 

Thank you for your originality.

And thank you for being the land of the free and the home of the brave.

But I have an issue,

Or two... 

Why do our bodies have to look like a Kardashian?

Why do we let businessmen take a seat at the White House?

Why do we let our education decline?  

Why do we hate all different races and sexes?

Why is the white male the only successful one still?

Why do I even try to be an American?

I want to be a person of freedom and liberty.

I wish this country took better care of itself. 

I want this country to think of the world first not its self. 

Dear America,

Please eventually get it right. 

Sincerely,

Your People

This poem is about:
