Oh America, Land of Liberty
What has happened to thee?
Where was your unfading love and beauty?
Can we still call you, Land of Opportunity?
God had blessed you so
That the whole world looked up you with awe
But now, why do nations hate you?
And people consider you their foe?
Do you still want our God to be pleased?
Of the goodness and freedom you had promised
Or maybe now you are one of those selfish beasts
That even taking care of you people is now on you last list.
Where is your democracy?
Do you still have it?
I am hoping.
I am praying.
