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.
