Will I Ever Be

Will I ever be good enough to conquer my fears?
For they hold me in the dark,
Will I make it to the light and dry my falling tears?
To show the world my abilities and finally make my mark.

Will I ever be good enough to make my voice heard?
For it’s the key to open life’s doors,
Will it grow wings and rise up like a bird?
To open minds, to grip attention with its claws.

Will I ever be good enough to open the eyes of the nation?
For they cannot see what harm they do,
Will countries join hands to save our civilisation?
To mourn the death of innocence and start again anew.

Will I ever be good enough to stand up tall in protest?
For it’s corruption that stains our souls,
Will my actions encourage the helpless to win their life’s contest?
To stand up, fight for freedom, to reach safety’s goals.

Will I ever be good enough to touch the lives of others?
For a caring hand can turn a life around,
Will discrimination vanish and we help our neighbours like brothers?
To join families, to create relations that are peacefully sound.

Will I ever be good enough to change the world we live in?
For it falls apart more each day,
Will we realise the pain, the darkness, the sin?
To feel the weight of deceit upon us as our lives are washed away.

Will I ever be good enough,
To be the change I want to see?

Something we can all think about and if we start trying to "make a difference", maybe the world will be a better place to live!
