MY country ‘tis of thee, sweet land of liberty
This place is a great fit for me.
I have the freedom to live
And be selfless and give.
I may only be a teenager in this big land
But I am recognized as an adult to give my own commands.
I am permitted to operate a car
Even if I decide not to go far.
I can choose to attend college
To grow my intelligence and knowledge.
I can say what I please
And do so with ease.
I can go to the doctor without a parent
I am a legal adult, isn’t it apparent?
I can buy my own lottery ticket
And if I win big I can go get it.
My life depends on my good decisions
But if I make a mistake I have learned how to make revisions.
America is treating me so very well
Great opportunities are here; time will tell.
So I stand stall and show my pride
There is no reason for me to run and hide.
The United States of America is my home
And I know while living here I will never feel alone.
