 My Words Spoken

Are we really united


Ignorance in addition to prejudice
is internationally known by all
races, creeds, and developing human species.

It's a shame when our country is
fighting within itself.
When outsiders coming in doing
massive destruction to our nation's health.

Yet we try to be big brother or father figure
to other nations,
ignoring our own nation's situations,
like hunger, the homeless and
missing exploited women and children
sold into slavery.

Then we act divided instead of united
while one class of people try to take care of
what they consider their own kind,
leaving the other class to the wolves
with neither side wanting to compromise .

So the rich stay rich,
living in life's utopian bliss,
while back lashing the middle and lower
working class, breaking their backs while
working to keep our country going
while in her turmoil.

We have suicidal bombers
causing millions of dollars of damage.
While the news saying kids shooting kids
up in schools all for the lust of blood
being spilled on our country's soil.

Prejudice is a wicked virtue.
When people are killed or even hurt
from the twisted beliefs of others
thinking you're having an affair against
your race for dating or congregating outside
your race.

Then judges and jurors convicting
a life or death sentence on the sometimes innocent
just because of their race or how they even look.
Who the hell are they to play god.

In god we trust,
are the words labeled across our nation's currency.
Which is reproduced and distributed in a daily fashion,
but yet they say our nation is still in a
critical deficit.

So where does our nation's currency go,
if not in the hands of power hungry officials
stuck on greed and corruption
with their own impure agenda.
Or does it go into the bribery of other countries
for self fulfillment.

This we'll never know.

It looks like our country is built for our leaders,
the rich, and the powerful,
for our leaders, the rich, and powerful.
Leaving the middle and lower working class
to work and break their backs for less plausible wages.

So are we really united, that's the question.
