i’m sick of sitting back
from one person to another
don’t wait

sometimes it is too late
but today we start again
stand up

young or old, black or white, man or woman
you matter
become courageous

let’s become the people who change today
tomorrow is not promised
speak out

we the people
of this country
matter

my heart goes out
to everyone that lost their lives in the parkland shooting
life will be hard knowing they’re gone
but let’s not stop trying
get up and don’t sit back down until what you want has happened
do not stop trying
anyone can change the world
we will be okay
they will too
this is hard
but reach out your hand and take mine
we walk together until everyone is hand in hand
and we fight
for what is right


i hope. it will change.
