Our Country

Looking around our world today
Its war, sadness and coldness i see,
Knowing inside that something is wrong
For this isn't how our life should be.

We have young people dying in war
So much hatred causing us to fight,
Innocent people getting caught in the middle
Have we all forgotten this isn't right.

There's people going around hungry
Gas prices so high we can't even drive,
People out committing many crimes now
Thinking its the only way to survive.

Our country is forgetting its own people
For all we stood for has been taken away,
We no longer think of the red, white and blue
Its now only what our country refuses to do.

Now its time for a new president again
They are counting on us to cast a vote,
Its quite sad if you take time to think
They need our help otherwise we're a joke.

America is now in great danger
Who do we have on our side,
Sad but true there is nobody
We've lost even our right to decide.
