What You Aren't


United States
You aren't! 
They say,
the doubters cry.
They chant,
one thousand strong.
You aren't!
There is no way,
they say.
They push you down, 
they're wrong.
You aren't!
They shriek,
more shrill, more loud. 
Can you rise above?
Show not a flaw...
do more, now fly! 
Rise above the crowd!
