This Is 'My' America - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Oh beautiful it is to awaken each day,
To have choices to make...
And aspire to achieve to unlimited heights.
With a doing to have no one refuse what I like.

Oh beautiful it is to feel free to take steps,
In any direction I wish to then select what's next.
And then to change my mind if I so please.
Or then leave this process to sit and breathe easily.

Is 'my' America. Happy Birthday U.S.A.
Happy July 4th!
No other place can I have it this way.

    Let everyone know the Truth
    And appreciate what they have
    As you well said,
    It's a privilege to be,
    Born here, born Free

    Thank you for this wonderful tribute to our Contry on it's Bithday.
    May it be forever true,
    That all you said,
    We are able to do!
