Rise of the Youth

Clean, innocent

Unaffected by time


Full of laughter, dreams

imagination, and life




But no, no it's ending

Erasing that clean beginning


Raping the virgins

aging them all


Causing long sighs

and heavy goodbyes


No living, 

more like dying...




Take back the keys

and be free!


Grab the scarred girls 

and damaged boys 

and yell out to the skies

"We are here!" 


Music, dancing, and love

"Let us love!"


Rise youth rise up and be who you are!

More than exams and test scores by far.

Be free...
