Subject: I Am An American Patriot

I am an American

I am an American patriot

I have learned democracy

And I know my country is tainted by a blot

That blocks right now what we see

A blot that sears our collective soul, makes blood run hot

I love our people and to be

There for each other and not

Pretend not to see

I love our land, the still wild and the tamed a lot

But I love more too

I love the people like us

Wherever they live, we should find ways to do

More all together, we must

Find ways to join our voices, connect our strengths, make new

Our longing for what is just

What is right for us all and true

To a vision of our unity

You see I love all our people

And I love how we can be
-at peace
-loving for loving's sake
-living love in what we do

We can love our America, our country

And not hate others

Because it's too late for we

To erect barriers
