Fuck you American Dream
You are not for everyone
You are only for the greedy beggars
who steel everything

You sleep soundly as children cry from hunger
and while loved and respected Elders
shiver and die in the cold

You are the fantasy
the opiate that the people
can chose to take
and not have to feel the pain
of knowing that we are not free

Fuck you American Dream
you are unsustainable
a mirage in the desert of greed
a trophy of celebrity

I do not believe in you
you are not my god
you can not buy my soul
for any price

I will walk a path of truth
compassion as my guide
I will only bow
to that which is sacred
to divinity within and without
