I walk through the halls all the faces a blrr
But I never hear the stomachs grrr.
They appear to be just a kid like me
But no one ever pays them heed.
We are trying to change the world in a day
But really we need to be a ray
A ray of love and of hope
Not of money which makes them go broke
It’s not about the result but the process
Work weaves us within one act of progress
There is a need in this big universe
There is a need we can diverse
Those who hunger could Hunger no longer
If each could stretch a hand a little farther
Do not take what is mine to give
Just to let someone else live!
It is not enough to sit back and watch
Abuse the system?-Not on my watch!
It takes love, compassion, and care
Is that too difficult to bare?
“Stick your hand in my side” he said to Thomas
He died for us but we sit in solace
Those who are in hunger have names
We only have ourselves to blame
They reach like the plant reaching for the light
Now it’s time for our light to shine bright
If we teach and love they will teach another
Now we can change the world with the help of each other.
