Freedom for America

The land of the free

Home of the brave

 

America

 

Where children run and hide

From the ricocheting bullets

Clinging to their friends

Protecting those they love

A school ground war zone

 

Why is battle constant?

 

One line on paper 300 years old

Locked government

Debating lives

Children shot

Lives lost

 

What for?

 

Our fleeting future

Trickling sand in the hourglass

That break far too soon

 

America

 

Where one school death isn't a headline

Where the childrens laughs turn to screams

Where generations crumble

Because pressure 

Makes

 

All

 

Glass

 

Shatter

This poem is about: 
Me
My family
My community
My country
