If I could change the world

If I could change the world

I would not start with civil rights

Or sorrowful, sleepness nights

Or stopping all the senseless fights


I would not start with prostitutes

Or giving people therapy

I would not start with anything else,

I would start with me


I would no longer care about what people think

Or focus on the things they say

I would not let their malice defeat

The greatness I have in any way


I would kill he bullies with kindness

Walk with my head held high

I would be a role model

And teach everyone to reach for the sky


I would let misery die,

Because misery loves company

I would illuminate with positivity,

Misery would not find a friend in me.
