The poem goes:
America America The land of the brave I love you so dearly But they treat you so bad The politicians and business men Treat you like mad What we once loved is suddenly fading Our dreams won't come true Our lives broken for you We need to preserve the great nation And turn it from bad For you are our hope And everything for we stand.

Another Poem by Gary Hess:
Serious anxiety flowing Crashing through my mind Blood rushing through my veins Muscles tightening upon compression The moment is soon to come Where losers will not win The masks come off from posers And winners show their skills The death of one has come quickly Another soon to fall The abilities matched between us Strength, quickness, stamina Just the same I choose the weapon I know best To fight off the evil souls Outnumbering my foolish hatred They strike quickly This moment of oppression Only seen by some It’s the time to attack My weapon swung but too soon They move quickly to retaliate My arm struck, bleeding My opponent strong but still foolish I use my mind to strike back Weakening their hope to win Seeing the passion within my eyes They settle into fear Victory will soon come Victory will soon come
This Poem relates to the American dream because this is the mentality that they say one must have inorder to achieve the american dream. It tells how this person will emerge victorious while others will not and will fail because of this ideology. It is good to put in the website because it shows how one is able to achieve the American dream. A final Gary Hess Poem: This poem takes a different view by looking at the idea of the American dream who has not achieved it. This person tells how they are not able to achieve what everyone is said to be able to get and how America is unjust to the poor. This is good to put in the website because it gives the idea that not everyone can achieve this dream.
Hundreds of dollars spent on time Money wasted for every being Getting hurt every moment Losing faith this very second What is there to do in this life? Knowing I won't have what I need Not the house or secure job Not the right life to live America the great Or injustice That's the way it is In this great nation The poor can't succeed The poor can't live The poor can't live love America is misery
