The identity of a nation,
Is it determined by the natives?
Or by those that judge us,
Those that peer in from a far?
Are we still the nation of immigrants
Yearning for freedom?
Do we desire to welcome and save
Or to squelch and suppress?
Is she lady liberty
OR is she lady oppressed?
Hidden alone on an island tarnished from years of little attention.
What is the identity of a nation?
A conglomeration of voices sold on the Internet to the highest bidder?
Or the actions of the government?
What defines your nation?
