My country

My country?
What does that mean?

Which country?
When it does not know?

The one of my birth?
Or the one of my forebears?

And which of them?
For they are not from one place.

The country on my passport?
Or the one in which I live?

The union in which it is said I live?
But of which most seem unaware?

Or the real, divided, and oppressive state
That governs against the will of so many?

My country?
What is real?

My country?
What do I want?

My country?
That should unite

My country?
Of which to be proud?

My country
That I do not know

My country
The place to which I aspire

My country
That might never be

My country
That I want to share

Our country
