I am American

Fri, 09/04/2015 - 12:38 -- tayloor

I am American,

Not only American but Hispanic.

Cultures joined inevitabley, 

Treated inequitably;

Because ONE of both are immigrants

I am the result of their love

YET treated unfair

Although we bare 

the sickening names;

 rapists, illegal

one who has taken part in all 

not much different than I

YET still wants to build a wall.

No one in this country is llegal

only the indians whom we are forever in debt to

a thought Donald Trump can't get.

Calling us a threat

as if we're begging for money

from the people of this country.

As if we aren't working

trying to complete a journey,

this usa will not be great with out diversity.

I am an American Hispanic proud of both 

but treated unfair for one.
