American Conscience

Updated on November 20, 2016
beauty hidden beneath a face...
beauty hidden beneath a face...


There's a feeling in this fine country, felt by every person here,

It so deserves a chance for healing and a forgetting of all fear.

We are Americans, all, despite our cultures, or each's own race,

Standing together, we may overcome, put smiles on every face.

We serve as a light house, a tower to the world...
We serve as a light house, a tower to the world...


The outcome of politics, its influences, is on every conscience now,

Despite the news, its negativity, we'll get through it all, some how.

We are strong, so independent, we would never have come so far,

Meant to be in every way, we'll all start over, wash away every scar.

wash away every scar...
wash away every scar...


It was no accident in the beginning, as our country had its start,

Was meant by a benevolent God and all the world to be a part.

Each country, its people to immigrate, to come, make us great,

Here every one has rights, to observe the laws, as all participate.

We're made of many faces and colors so vibrant in the country.
We're made of many faces and colors so vibrant in the country.


A country like America's so very rare, is an ideal model to this world,

As all together we serve and stand, hold our banners high, to unfurl.

We shall never succumb to greed, the avarice, we are a better kind,

The power we hold inside, our courageous hearts, now we shall find.

New buddings and a fine new country awaits us all...
New buddings and a fine new country awaits us all...
