America The Beautiful

How this Independence Day is hypocritical

65
America The Beautiful

On this July Fourth

This day will be different than before

Instead of joy and celebration

We are more divided in this nation

The home of the brave and land of the free

Muslims wonder, "Does this statement apply to me?"

While we are all immigrants in some way or another

Our President urges us to turn our backs on our brothers

If we allegedly have freedom of religion

Why are people being labled as terrorists in the place where they are living

Being educated does not limit ignorance

Especially when you have a Vice President like Pence

As we watch the fireworks in the sky

Minorities continue to cry as we continue to die

Needing government assistance is labeled just for the poor

While other races cheat, lie, and continue to gain more

On this day lets toast to our wealth

While we countdown the hours until they decide on our health

While our former President would have been eaten alive

Our current President's policies continue to thrive

Despite disdain from "liberals"

He is allowed to ruin our country and expects us to remain civil

You place a travel ban and claim it is for our safety

When a terrorist can be from any race, ethnicity, or creed

You cannot target a whole religion because of a handfull of radicals

And prevent immigration and claim it is tactical

You are going to bring back jobs to the Black community

While millions of my people sit in prison and jails without immunity

Let's fire up the grill and and have some fun

Then hear the next day someone died from a gun

Then the assailant is deemed "not guilty" when it is all said and done

So much has happened since January

Which makes me question what is wrong with this country?

So once again America has spoken

As I wait to see how he "Makes America Great Again"

Blue Skies Weren't Always Blue

Overall I'd love to say I grew up a happy overly enthusiastic child that was taught to love herself and be loved by everyone else, but I can't say that and I never will. My smile wasn't always as bright as it is today, but this is the story behind my smile, the story about how I got here to the happiest place I'll ever be. I'll begin at freshman year of high school.
