America's Heart

By Alyssa Garcia

Dingeman Elementary, San Diego

In my fair America,

Freedom and shining liberty sings like angels.

America’s loyal heart grows high enough to touch heaven,

America grows bright like the beautiful Sun.

We are a flavorful feast of tasty salads,

All mixed together,

Everyone has a different flavor,

Some people can be sour, sweet, or spicy,

Together we make a wonderful salad of hope.

Is America a dream of second chances?

An idea of a new beginning?

A hope of equality?

But I know America is a faithful country,

Of stars & stripes
