I wish I could change the world,
so much still left unturned.
The violence in society not sustained,
fault brought to us, still left unclaimed.
I wish I could alter minds to think openly,
so ideas won't be taken carelessly.
Equality and justice for every person.
No matter race, age, or religion.
For people to love whomever they please,
happiness their own, forever at ease.
Wish this world would open its eyes.
Realize just how much is caused.
Hasn't ceased, it's just in disguise.
Hasn't stopped so many crimes.
Pain, shame, and humility,
Nothing in this world, now too beautiful to see.
Love at its least, no need to pretend
The future without worth, the past to forget.
If I can stand in front of those,
Peole with ignorance, convicts,
those souls soon to fall.
Though tears of innocence continue to flow;
Pursuing for change, starts with us all.
