I Need to Take a Stand
The world is completely broken
I need to take a stand
I need to cease the joking
Put forth a helping hand
Grades are seriously low
Children are getting high
Those kids still need to grow
I should stop asking why.
This 12 year old is pregnant
Her friend is sending nudes
Their outcomes aren't pleasant
Their future's surely doomed.
A 1 year old is swearing
A 3rd grader just got raped
This is the point I should really start caring!
Because this system isn't great!
Adolescents are smoking and drinking
With commercials egging them on
This is the point I need to start thinking
That these corruptions need to be gone!
A helpless girl is cutting
Because her friend has just passed
I can not keep on running
From the issues that can not last.
Stop passing this off to others!
Its time to take a stand!
I will help to be the driving force that will uncover
The demons infesting this land.
Our world is seriously broken
I have to give advice
My thoughts need to be spoken
Or the kids will pay the price.
I will help bring this world back together
One little piece at a time
There's no mount'n I can not weather
I just need to start the climb.
