What makes America great?
America, who can make you great again?
When the seeds of your greatness lays in
the second paragraph
of The Declaration of Independence.

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."1

America, you have never achieved
the greatness
promised in this sacred document.

America, from the moment of your birth
you have been cursed
by inequity,
and all the forces of darkness
preventing you from achieving
the greatness that your birth certificate

America, it isn't too late
for you to become great;
there is still time
for you to achieve your full potential,
but only if
your citizens,
tear down the walls
that separate.
