America, America

America, America

A Poem by Lyric

'America, America, land of the free'
You chose a path unlike most others,
One of democracy

Civil rights
'Free, country'

'Home of the brave'
Could've fooled me

'Equal rights'
'Best place to be'

'Accepting and loving'
'Color blind'

Not there yet
Just insanity

Humans can be monsters
Lies can be hard to see

'America, America, land of the free'

This is really cool, I like your format and rhyming pattern. It is a tiny bit choppy at the end and beginning, but other than that it's a great poem.
