There is change great and small,

At times it feels as though it doesn't matter at all.

So many things that go on

That could fill a hundred songs,

Never get to see the day of light 

For people care more about which celebrities get in a fight.

Sadly, this is the case.

This is the world's face;

Where corruption, sickness, greed,  and poverty

All have complete sovereignty,

Where women get silenced, children get guns, people fear shadows

And everyone just follows,

Where discrimination and bigots are just part of daily life

Where litter gets thrown here and there

Where children and animals are treated like pests -

All these problems cut like a knife

They all exist, I swear.

Even common courtesty is an unwelcomed guest

There are problems great and small

If we don't change them all it won't matter at all
