You've gotta work hard in our world,

You've gotta stay strong to survive,

Now it's my turn to see what I can do



We all want to do a thing or two

We all wish to make our mark on other lives

everyone needs something to live for,

Why not live for our world?

All it takes is one small hand to usher in change

All you need is your words and your heart

to raise a commotion

Why not start a revolution

a revolution for peace

why not put together this broken nation

There are so many unfortunate souls out there

I'm gonna be their voice, let them speak,



We all want to do a thing or two

We all wish to make our mark on other lives

Everyone needs something to live for,

Why not live for our world?

All it takes is one small hand to usher in change

All you need is your words and your heart

to raise a commotion

I see it in my city

People dying, people crying

It doesn't have to be this way,

Why did we let it get this way?

Guess it's my turn to take see what I can do

To lead this revolution

For what is right



We all want to do a thing or two

We all wish to make our mark on other lives

Everyone needs something to live for,

Why not live for our world?

All it takes is one small hand to usher in change

All you need is your words and your heart

to raise a commotion

It's time for those who are " different " to speak,

It's time to leave o u r homes and fight for the rights we want to keep,

I don't care about the color of your skin,

I don't mind what eth i cal group you are in

Everyone i s a person And deserves to be treated right,

Everyone needs someone to help spread their light



We all want to do a thing or two

We all wish to make our mark on other lives

Everyone needs something to live for,

Why not live for our world?

All it takes is one small hand to usher in change

All you need is your words and your heart

to raise a commotion

to start a revolution with your mind

All you've gotta do is speak out and the hardest part is done

There's a lot of things in going on in our world that aren't good. The only people who can stop them are every day people like me and you. That's what i want this poem to say. That's the point.

I can't remember it clearly, but it went something like this:

"The past is the past, the future is the furture. But now, now is like a gift, which is why it is called present."

I get it! I love it! I feel the same way allll the time!
