America isn't what it use to be-
It no longer consist of the same 'freedom and liberty,'
The government is no longer like our fore-fathers
Instead all they know how to do is tax our dollars,
Kids can't even go to school proclaiming this or praying that-
People don't you want our America back?
This generation in America needs to learn to stand-
How will things ever change if we just remain silent?
Americans are so lazy
compared to those other countries-
Don't get me wrong I do love my country
But is this how America's really suppose to be?
If you look at American society
You'll see it's not all 'happy go lucky'-
I mean most of our very own Vets are struck in poverty!
Looking at our country can you say,'I'm proud as can be!'
When this really isn't really the best America could be?

This is so true. Whatever happened to the america that was so highly talked of and idolized. America was the place of opportunity. But not so much now...

I actually wrote a poem today about what America is to me, but i wrote good things about it. After reading your poem, it made me change my mind and now, im going to add some minor changes as to what is really going on today.

Well I'm glad you agree...but I didn't mean to sound completely negative about America it was more just to show the truth of it today and how America can be so much more!
