Change the perspective
Change what's right and wrong written or spoken
Change what's yours or mine – ours
Change you and me – us
Change the distinct lines separating us into neighborhoods – community
Change the voice that says you aren't good enough
Change the battered lives by working alongside them, not for them
Change the mentality.
That you can't pull yourself up by your bootstraps anymore. Never was.
Let others help pull up your bootstraps.
Then use those boots to give to your community.
Paint your own future.
