Everyday I hear
The economy's failing
The government's helpless
We need more jobs

People say
Unemployment rates are sky-rocketing
National debts are raising
Poverty is spreading

Right now
I'm just one kid
Going to school
Getting an education

I'm stuck
In the middle
Of everything
That's going on

I wonder where all these problems
Leave me
What about my future
What about my plans

I want to go to college
I want to be a teacher
But will these national issues
Will I have to bend my dreams

Is it fair for me
To have to sacrifice
All my hopes
Because of choices I didn't make

I won't take less than what I've earned
It's time for me to step up
I'm part of this society too
I want a chance at my future

I've been in the shadows too long
It's time to defend my dreams

The problems every one is talking about seem like they're jeopardizing my chance at the future I've dreamed about.
