When I was younger
I would sit in the back of the classroom without saying a single word
My teacher would always call on me
As if doing so will bring out some justification of my personality
Don’t get me wrong I was terribly crafty with the shaking of my head
However a teardrop of my soul I was unwilling to shed
In order for good to exist there must be bad
Just as happy cant exist without his fraternal twin sad
I’m not concerned with the politics about life they mean nothing to me
They say that I’m free but please define liberty
As if freedom of choice is what I desire
Its freedom from choice
It’s about time to speak my voice
Our country has enough food to feed the whole world,
Yet children go starving at night
As if there value can be defined by the heritage of their race
And as if laws and rules will make this world a better place
Women fight for their rights
As if the skin they sit in
Can determine their value
If in the end everyone is suffering, than who is to win?
We fight wars
Yet the world will continue spinning without saying a single word.
Think about how many I could’ve and I should’ve are floating out in the sea of forgotten dreams and abandoned hopes
They were just words at once
They were just a girl in the back of the classroom, without saying a single word.
But not today, because you see the same girl is standing up and saying several words
Because she knows that if she fills up her gas tank with a little fuel of positivity and action
Sets her compass for the moon,
That even though she may not make it she will land on the stars
You have to admit it’s quite hilarious
The serendipity the functionality that life is without saying a single word.
