Welcome to America

Welcome to America.
Where we think it's wrong for women in Africa
to walk around topless.
Where we cringe at the thought of another nation
choosing its own form of government.
Where we slander an Australian mother
for continuing to breast feed her five year old.
Where we look down upon the Shiites
that bleed for their faith.
Welcome to America.
Where we pay for expensive and painful surgeries
just to be pretty.
Where we hide to make love
and create hatred in broad daylight.
Where we worship football
more than a god.
Where kids are closer to technology
than their families.
Welcome to America.
Where we judge all day long,
but never consider our own faults.
