People protest because they want to be heard.

They want to fight for their rights, 

but sometimes those end up turning into fights.

People’s rights are like gold, 

so they have to stand up and be bold.

People protest because of unfair laws,

because they feel like they have a cause.

People protest because they want to be seen.

A protest isn’t always just a big scene.

So don’t worry, don’t give up,

stand tall,

then we won’t have to worry at all.

Our voices will be heard.
