Hard To Believe

 

They used to say that this was the land of the free,

but it’s getting harder now for me to see

 

why they would choose to use me as symbol

when it’s hard now to navigate, have to be nimble.

 

All the obstructions, the discriminatory laws,

the way that they’ll exploit any small clause;

 

a lot that I see now, I’ve come to despise,

with power-hungry bigotry backing the lies.

 

I stretch out my wings, preening a feather

trying to comprehend, understand whether

 

I should take to the air and away I should fly --

getting to this stage, I just don’t know why.

 

No more what it was, cannot claim to be free,

I’m thinking this country’s no longer for me.
