America, I was born within your boundaries
I have drink from your flowing streams

I have watched your Winters turn to Spring
I have touched the things of your inner core
that makes the heart of people far away leave
their birth land to reach your shore.

America, I have heard your many religion voices
Singing .... and from them learned to seek my God
from within.....
I have heard your many theory voices
and chose for myself to believe in the theory
of my country's founding fathers-the one that so
proudly, for over 200 years- defends the doctrine
of equality among all men.

America, I have heard the stories of old of how
your birth came to be......
But to me it is the stories that I live a part of today,
And what I as an American am willing to take a stand
for, that speaks loudest to the hearts of those who have
never known true liberty.
