The Proud…

We call ourselves Americans – a proud and moral group. We hold to life and liberty within our stately troupes. Delighting in our history as decades pass and meld; fulfilling dreams of yesterday our forefathers once held.

It’s so serene, the image seen – America, the grand. Created by and for our needs we’ve fought to hold this land. Allegiance to the flag – we state; one nation under God. We burst with pride – mom – apple pie! Is this but a façade?

The answer rests with whom you ask to find a clear response. Though most will say in vital ways we need a renaissance of what it is that represents our country as a whole… We need to take a good hard look – and find our common goals.

For there are burrs embedded – deep within our nation’s heart. They burrow with their angry barbs and weaken all the parts with epitaphs of who fits in and who is fit to stay. We sit in judgment of ourselves! A truly sad display.

America, the beautiful; the words our nation sings. They bring up thoughts of cherished lands – how freedom always rings. But in this day and hour we’re at war within our lines; because the word ‘American’ means more than it defines…

A native or inhabitant is what the word suggests. In looking at the U.S.A – we wear so many vests! The fullness of our culture comes from lots of avenues – from places all around the globe; infusing countless views.

And yet, to look inside our ranks there’s loathing from within. It seems some think Americans should match in thought and skin. Our history states otherwise – we have a massive sign held close to breast – by she who holds the key to our design…

She lifts her lamp to huddled masses – yearning to be free. She says “Come send your homeless and your tempest-tost to me.” And so in droves we’ve come to live from nations far and near; to have a place that we call home – within a new frontier.

America, ‘the melting pot’; it’s how our country’s known! With many varied cultures it is how our country’s grown! The richness of our customs are entrenched throughout the land. So as we share our ways of life – we grow – thus we expand…

Take heed – fellow Americans; we live within the shores that promise freedom to the world – long opened are our doors. We mustn’t lose the standards that are built on our ideals; appreciate the ‘whole’ we are! And we’ll begin to heal…
