Why should I be proud of my country?
Why should I be proud of our history?
Not a gleaming past, but a forgotten tragedy.
America is a tapestry rewoven to suit what we would perceive
Still lying underneath is a loom of oppression
Our country was built on foundations of hatred.
But how far have we really come?
While there are those who still cannot find freedom within our borders,
I don’t know if this country was ever great.
