The Great America

Farida Danladani

America, I am afraid for my future.
I am scared of who my next president will be.
I am scared of my school being the next on the news for school shooting,
Being American is accepting the racism,
turning a blind eye on my people getting shot at by the police.
America you said they are here to protect us,
America are you happy now?
Gun violence didn’t kill us,
no America your criticism will drive us to our end. I am scared for my generation.
This is what it feels like to be an American,
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave?
