What Is It That I See?

As I look across America
What is it that I see?
A once strong and proud republic
That was all about opportunity...

As I look across the land
What is it that I see?
Hungry little children
With their arms stretched out to me...

As I look across the sky
What is it that I see?
Flocks and flocks of lost birds
Seeking to land in a long lost tree...

As I look across the ocean
What is it that I see?
Angry people fighting one another
As their aging parents attempt to flee...

As I look across the heavens
What is it that I see?
Angels looking down sadly
As we no longer live peacefully...
