Meaningful words from a Filipino American writer…

"I Want the Wide American Earth"


Before the brave, before the proud builders and workers,
I say I want the wide American earth
For all the free.
I want the wide American earth for my people.
I want my beautiful land.
I want it with my rippling strength and tenderness
Of love and light and truth
For all the free.

-Carlos Bulosan
