Piercing words.
Piercing images.
How would it feel to be asked if you belonged?
Too many factors to count,
Too many complicated solutions,
Can it be called land of the free?

If I am asked if I belong.

part of it is, and part of it isn't

what inspired me to write this was an picture that came with an article about what is happening in arizona

but after that i started thinking of real life situations so it ties in to both

wow. great message, however, i think you could have elaborated. But then again, some poems are best when they are short ;)
