Land of the Free

Instead of being the Americans
That none chose to remember;
Let us become the America
That fondly glows with splendor.

 

No longer will we attack an America
That has the smidge of craft,
If we must attract the Americans
Who have to bridge the gap.

 

Great opportunity does not come,
Because we inhabit America;
Great opportunity does so come,
Because America inhabits us.

 

America,
This is the land of the free,
And we must prosper as one,
If we wish to continue to be…
In America,
The land of the free.
 

Instead of bringing forth an America
That rejects all faces;
We will bring forth Americans
That respect all races.
 

No longer will we charter an America
That greeds all day with favor,
If we must harbor the Americans
That bleed all day from labor.

 

For it is not how we live in this country
That determines the fate of our lifetime,
But it is so how we live in this lifetime
Which determines the fate of our country.

 

America,
This is the land of the free
And we must prosper as one,
If we wish to continue to be…
In America,
The land of the free.

This poem is about: 
Me
My family
My community
My country
Our world
