We are all taught to believe our choices are our own,
yet we walk the Earth our voices still unknown.
Its a popularity contest you can never win,
your fate is decided before you even begin.
We are led to believe that we can't make a change,
that our dreams and our goals are just not in range.
In a world so corrupt the problems rarely show.
Ignorance is bliss; we feel better not to know.
But I can't help but feel we have had enough,
the rich don't bail out the poor when the going gets tough.
I am so disappointed in this land we call the free,
the lies and the money don't make sense to me.
I want to make a change but I feel so small,
so I stand here waiting with my back against the wall.
People need to change their line of sight,
raise their voice and do what's right.
