The land that claim it’s freedom from the oppressors in the past
is now the one doing the oppressing.
America does not even represent
the United States only -
It is two continent separated into one name.
I was born in the states.
New York State.
In New York City,
I was born from Dominican parents.
Dad left before I was born.
Gain my mom’s last name.
‘America’ as it stands represents many nationalities
but what the people hear is how to make America Great Again.
In what way?
By making only Rich White Men that only own property be in charge?
‘America’ has it’s faults like any other country.
Yet Americans as “we” are all called are too prideful
To admit we have any wrongs in our history.
‘America’ is the land of the free
and the place to reach the dream.
Too sad a time to notice that the truth doesn’t ring true
anymore like it once used too.
But do people know? Not much? So little?
That they still travel here from the “outer world”
to find a better life than the ones they have endure,
to foster the next generation to be better and stronger,
than their forefathers and their fathers’ fathers.
“America” have many outlying variations that give this nation a meaning.
Too many of the few -- the flag of the ice cream colors don’t call attention
to any homeland they have known. The flag swings, just to transmit disdain.
To others that very flag swings to showcase honor and prosperity.
“We” as American are definity divided as a Nation.
