Poetry About America

America is both the most loved country in the world and the most hated. Controversies follow the United States to every aspect of the political spectrum. What can be done to change this? How can America do better for one part of the world while worsening another?

To me, the United States of America is the best country in the world. It is full of every culture imaginable, every type of person, and every opportunity. However, over the past decadue plus, things haven't been quite the same as what they once were. Is this due to globalization? Is it due to greed?

These poems are meant to be patriotic but not in the original sense of the word. This poetry does not praise the United States for what it is, but they talk about what it should be or what has went wrong in hopes of citizens realizing it and changing the country for the better.
