The Land I Fly For

The land I fly for

is not the land I should fly for.

The land I fly for honors my stripes and stars

but not each other.

The land I fly for

only knows inequality.

The land I fly for changes myself to match the amount of states there are,

but wont change themselves to match what the country needs.

The land I should fly for honors my stripes, stars, and each other.

The land I should fly for only know equality.

The land I should fly for changes myself to match them

as well as changes themselves to match what they need.

The land I fly for

is not the land I should fly for.
