I want to be heard and seen

Not like someone famous,but as an inspiration 

Loud and proud

Confident and hopeful

That the world around me will soon not only see me but hear me too.

 

I want to be heard and seen

Like those quiet and shy kids in school

Who hide in the shadows of those who think they are bigger than them

 

I want to be heard and seen

Like society accepts me

But,i guess to do that i would have to go and be foolish

Like the ones you see on YouTube, or some of the rich and famous

Because people think that,that is what they have to do to be heard?

Like that's what they have to do to be seen?

 

I want to be heard and seen

Like Martin Luther King

Where his words of insight and hopefulness helped everyone to see

He was heard by many people and that was all he wanted.

 

I want to be heard and seen

For someone who might in the future help the world

I want to be heard and seen

To show kindness and compassion for those who are in need

No,i don't want to do it for the money or for the fame i might get

I'd do it for the smiles and laughs I'd get out of it

For all those people i might have touched as to help fill their hearts with hope and joy.

I want to be heard and seen

For who I am,for who i might be.
