America Today

By , Ashburnham, MA
America is the country
I am living in today,
But is it what it seems to be?
That is hard to say.

When most people think of America
They think that land of the free,
But once I start to realize,
We are not all we can be.

All around there’s hatred
And things are going wrong.
Money’s being wasted
People feel they don’t belong.

We still have many racists
And people always judge.
Everyone is equal,
There’s no need to hold a grudge.

People come to America
To live a better life.
A man wants happiness
For his children and his wife.

Yes, there are many great things
In this country so divine,
But the problems all around us
Are growing like a vine.

We need to stand together
And show others what we are,
Because we cannot be the country
Who failed, once we’ve gone so far.
