What the hell are you waiting for?
Don’t you see all the shit that’s going on right now?
And you’re just lying there, not doing anything about it!
I know what you think about every day and night
You’re always shouting, screaming, complaining that someone should stop
all the corruption, all the injustice, all the racism, all the poverty….
Well…are you really just gonna stay there sitting down after everything?
What the fuck is wrong with you?
You want all these problems to be solved
Yet, you act like it’s not your fucking problem,
so now, all of a sudden, you don’t want to deal with any of it
How will you ever know that maybe this was the purpose you were put on this Earth?
Maybe you’re the light that people are waiting for to guide them
That starving child’s hero
Or maybe even the hero that that hippie man always wanted to be
You want to know how to make your voice heard?
You want me to teach you how to be an influence on others?
I’m sorry, but I’m afraid I won’t be able to do that
That’s something that comes deep within you, you know
A feeling that connects your heart to your brain
An emotion that makes the blood rush through your head and your body and your soul
A thought that fades into a form of expression that speaks for itself
An action that makes the world believe again
Can you find it within you to search for that all alone?
Please tell me you will
Please tell me you can
Because you already have the reasons on why you should
You know I will always be here, so just remember I believe in you
But I can only do so much to help you be a fighter and a leader
As I am simply your own reflection shining upon this broken mirror
