There's Nothing Free In America

does that star spangeled banner yet wave

o'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

how ironic that we are not free nor are we brave

run by a government who are cowards and steal from others

stealing from children and from mothers

who stole the country they claim as their own

turn away people who are looking for homes

shame them with names and hurt them with stones

every single day we are killing our own

yet I'm supposed to call this place a home?

descriminating against people for their race

making them feel out of place

paying for education when is should be free

working hard even when there is nothing left of me

lord, I wish everyone could just be free

but we all know.....

nothing is free in Amerikkka

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