Tides of a hated winner

Thu, 11/28/2013 - 04:54 -- Koryn03

I fell in love with America

For it was my own home

Too bad this same America

Treated me poorly until I was alone

They all said I was beautiful

For I was strong and bright

But then those same people

Were trying to dim my light.

I am different, yet the same

If you can't see me as your comrade

Then you are insane

If there is hatred in your life

All because I came

Then at least let me tell you

I am not to blame

Your bigotry is
