America Is Not... Is


America is something far greater
beyond the borders of the united states

America is not made of rock land or sea
America is not the country
we were fooled into
mistaking it to be
America is not a monger of war
not a preacher of nationalism
America does not exploit
the weaknesses of humanity
America has never been
represented accurately
or depicted properly
by those career manipulators
America is not a place
where one man can reject
the presence of another

America is raw unearthed potential
freedom truth beauty equality!

America resides in the heart and mind
America is home of the human spirit
America is a dream of potential earth utopia
America is something we all cherish and long for

America, its time we redefine ourselves
rethink our concept of who we are.

    I liked the ending of your piece of poetry. Yes, we as Americans need to redefine
    ourselves and learn to live as our forefathers designed it to be. I thought your
    word read smoothly and it was a beautiful one. It was one of those that make
    you think and I like those. (Report) Reply
