Proud to be an American

This poem seeks to describe the idea of pursuing life, liberty and happiness as an American. The idea that anyone can start from the bottom and with hard work can be the President or CEO of their own company someday. The idea that regardless of what your circumstances might be when you started because we live in a free society you can change these circumstances and pursue the things you love. The idea of living your life to the fullest and making every opportunity count. The idea that when you live your life to the fullest this will be the moment when you will find you have true happiness and fulfillment within your life.

What does it mean to be an American?
Life, Liberty and the pursuit of happiness?

Having the ability to live your life the way you want it to be
Changing the status quo & history
Living freely to do as you wish
Being with the one you love & having happiness

What does it mean to be an American?

Growing up in poverty
Who knew who you could be?
Having free will to do as you wish
You choose to do more continuing forward
Pursuing happiness

Your hard work & determination shine through
You are who you are by just being you

Proud to be an American
