My Liberty, My America

My Liberty, My AmericaWhat is America to You?

It is to me what you say it should be

You told me it is liberty, so it is liberty

You told me I am free, so I am free

You told me I am blessed to be born in America, so I know I am blessed

You told me to pledge allegiance to a flag, so I memorized  the pledge and

planted it in my heart and when my 2nd grade class gets up each morning, I can proudly recite it from my brave heart.

You taught me the American dream and that is my goal

that is my art

I draw my house, my family, my dog, and color my grass bright green

Slavery and  Jim Crow was the past and now I am free

No one can really bother me right?

Because it is My Liberty and My America
