Why are we leaving it up to the children?
Do you know your country, or do you only
Know what you are told by the media, or
Local gossip? Everyone of color has been
Discriminate against, the whites have yet
To understand that they are privileged.
The status of your existence is unimportant
If you are poor and white, you still have
Priviledge over anyone of color. You live
In America and you think that you are free!
Silence is our words, the stories we tell
Are not true; they are made up of all that
We wish to be. The dead of the past are
All hero’s and we sing the praises of their
Names and their conquest. Silence our words
For they are only half truths.
We continue with our lives as if we know
Where we are going and what we are doing,
But do we? Were we meant to be ruled by
A group of people that are out for themselves
Only? They rule over all of the people. Yes,
We voted them in, do we even look at who we
Put into office? Are they fit to be an official?
Of the United States of America? What is
Their personal life that will start the question
As to how they will act in their government
We, the people of our generation are lost, we
Have let the government get too far into this
Mockery. These people we elect are in the game
For themselves and do no care about the people.
They do not think about the children of today or
Of those that will be born tomorrow. Will they
Have a tomorrow? Or will America turn into a
Third world country? Will our farm lands be
Baron waste lands?
The land of the free and the home of the brave,
Will be a thing of the past. Hopefully, someone
Will remember as there will be no books to read,
There will be no memorials to see, no places to
Visit with the family. Those who still fight for
Freedom will do so underground. They will be
Called the enemy, and they will be treated as
There will be no government, but there will still
Be the fine places for the politicians to rule from,
And they will still live in the finest homes, their
Children will not be hungry. Yours will. Our
Military will be those who guard the officials and
Keep in line the people; keep the peace so to speak.
The people will live on little as the government will
Take the largest portion of your hard earned money.
Your children will go hungry!
You will live in unawareness, you will believe that
The present is all there is, you will be passive in
All things. Yet, there will still be those few who
Believe in what America once stood for, they will
Be the ones who continue to see it as a free nation.
They will fight to live in a nation that is for the
People, by the people. These Fighters for freedom
Will never go away, you the Government will not
Sleep at night for you will be Afraid that the
“Freedom Fighters” will come to Take back their
It is time that you, as adults stand up and fight for
Your children. Leave them a government that is by the
People, and for the people. You cannot bring back the
Books that have been band, you cannot bring back the
Statues, the many memorials torn down, you cannot
Bring back the land that has been desecrated. But,
You can see that they have a government that will
Have the people In their sights when voting on issues
It is time to vote in decent human beings, those who
Truly believe in a free nation. Let’s, start at home,
Bring into the lives of our children a freedom that they
Will pass down to their children. It is not about us,
Those that will not be here to know that they are free.
It is about the children, those unborn that will inherited
This land called America.
