Take A Stand


I once asked my teacher a question
"How does one get someone's attention?"
She looked and sighed
That's how I know my question is justified.

She turned from the board
And showed compassion like a lord.
"Do what people consider insane."
Answered my teacher who just grabbed onto her cane.

I thought it over as I didn't understand
"Why would a person not be so bland?"
"How do I even go so far as to be crazy?"
Now the picture seemed less hazy.

Speak out against the world and its cruelty
Maybe one day you could be royalty.
Don't run when you have the chance
Instead take it and show the world your stance.
