"The heart may be weak, and sometimes it may even give in. But I've learned that deep down, there's a light that never goes out!"
"There is no darkness strong enough in this world that can diminish the light in our hearts."
-Kingdom Hearts

We are the next generation,
And we will stand strong!
You may think you can break us,
But you’re wrong!
We stand together,
No matter the cost,
Especially when the lives
Of our peers have been lost.
The government thinks things are fine as it is,
But we will fight to do what is right.
Even if our ideas get shut down,
We’ll continue to fight!
Life is a roller coaster,
But we persevere through the wild ride,
And if you attack us,
There’s no way you can hide
From the power
Our voices carry.
You can shoot us down,
And we’ll be wary,
But we’ll get back up
Stronger than ever,
And we’ll fight this fight
Hand-in-hand, together.
We are the future,
And the future is now.
You can try,
But you’ll never break us down!
We fight for our country
In every way we can think of,
And some of us fall,
Being sent to the heavens above,
But even if we lose that battle,
We will never lose hope!
We are the future!
The future is now!
We’ll all stand together,
And we’ll change things somehow,
Even if it takes forever,
Because we’re stronger together,
And together, you won’t break us down.
Our spirit lives on,
Even if we do not,
And we can win this fight
Without any guns!
We protect each other!
We stand up and fight for each other!
We provide each other strength when we fall,
And we help each other up through all
We CAN win
If was stand together,
So don’t give up!
They can’t break us down!

This is a tribute to the victims and the survivors of the Stoneman Douglas School Shooting; I send my prayers to all who went through this, and I send my hope of winning this fight against gun control.
