This is America

This place, the great United States
A combination of all fates
We try, we fly we sometimes fail
To be the best, our holy grail
From everywhere come the greats
Idols, heroes, this land creates
Striving, pushing when life berates
We, all colors and shades of pale
This is our land

We falter like tectonic plates
We grow at astonishing rates
Honor from every woman and male
Tears, cheers from every person’s tale
Soldiers, science, my chest inflates
This is our land
