I See a World...

Location

I look in the mirror and I see a girl

A girl who wants to change the world

Show everyone what could be

If from our eyes we erased the greed

The greed of a nation wanting more

Money, power galore

 

I close my eyes and pray

Pray for change for the young ladies

To not be dependent of men,

Who only want an object of sex

To find respect

For themselves and their bodies

 

When I close my eyes I dream

Of a society,

Where men and women

Can live equally

Without male dominancy

 

A society,

Where the color of one’s skin

Did not subjugate them

To the stereotypes created

By the hate in another man's heart

 

I look out the window and see

A world of peace;

Nations not sending family

To fight to no seeable end

Where friends don’t die

A bloody end

 

I look in the mirror

And I see a girl,

A girl who wants to change the world

Show everyone what could be;

A world with

Peace, love and equality
