Not yet exceptional. When the exceptional rating is reached this is highlighted
America is evolving, requiring decisions to be made
"Hello America" by Stephen Force
Hello America
it's me your destiny calling
you are standing at a precipice
it's time to fly or start falling

You are standing at the mouth of a river in time
at the foot of a mountain - will you swim or climb

You have come to the place where you have to decide
whether you will sink like a stone or rise like a tide
whether you will climb to the peak with pride and elation
or plummet to your death in complete devastation

You have played the game for way too long
preaching right and doing wrong
espousing plaudits of democracy
while establishing a plutocracy

You sing of the land of the free
and the home of the brave
while you indenture some
and others you enslave

The time has come 
to choose your fate.
Will you embrace love; 
or perpetuate hate?

Hello America
It's me your destiny,
it's time to choose:
What will I be?
