America, Do You Love Me?

Do you love me? Will you safe-
guard my freedoms? Protect
me from fear? Or am I a DREAMer,
my dreams once deferred, now declined? Your
version of the American Dream – grab life by the balls –
a members’ only access point, a wall to my family?
dreams of irrevocable security, sanctity of home, freedom?
