United States

I come from the land of the free

the land of me

In a nation with unlimited freedom,

covered only by social demeans,

Laws set by people with no power to make laws

dictate how we run our lives,

People with no political power who think their power is raw

Tell us when to swim and when to dive.

However, I am me and I am uncontrolled,

unchained, broken loose, and ungovernable.

I am me and my actions are out of your control.

This poem is about: 
My community
My country
