kicking and screaming against the oppression of a King.
We fought our way into existence to hear freedoms ring.
When all else were ignoring our captivity and slavery,
we rose up almost to a man
and found the courage against all odds
to become a nation that takes a stand.
When countries greedily assume our intentions are based on gain.
When individuals mistakenly target us with adverse and sordid refrain,
we understand their ignorance, we are a nation that was composed in pain.
Our intentions are honorable not profitable, and greed is not our aim.
Destroying another oppressor and freeing people to a life of freedoms reign,
is our desire.....and need not be explained.
To those who view everything in terms of money, power and personal gain.
Toss not that first stone, oppress not your peoples lives.
Torture not, murder not, or your actions will soon fill our eyes.
Beware our focus and attention. For freedom is worth our lives.
How can you understand us. How little some of you do.
How personal you assume our actions, and how could you be...so you.
Open your eyes to our intentions, not blind them to your personal vision.
Toss away all those false assumptions. Understand our love and wisdom.
