America, To A Whole Idea

Folks got their freedom
With honors of saints
As competence emerged
Humanity arose
Victory marches
Over battlefields of hard labor
A union, must we say?
All 50 stars?
A nation united
Still divided
Blacks and Whites
Fair and just
Oh, we carried his ideas  
After he died  
Still ideas, goes astray
Dreamy ideals
Therefore a dream
Equal ... yet unequal
Tis the nation's truth
Histories remembered
Interpretations freed
Ideals then... that the ideas crippled
More, and more, to keep needs in control
Adjusted for improvements
Never improved enough
Which is best
Never can we decide
