A Petition For Living
Old and weary, that I am not,
Yet Wise, have comfort in my own skin and know what I have got.
I do not have a wealth of knowledge for others to share
Yet I do have a genuine ability so others can tell I care
I care about life, Our world and it's tomorrow
Believe we can change the world or we will be facing sorrow
Aware of the need to cease violence and selfishness
For if this does not happen; Well you do not have to guess
The world will start crumbling as more greed sets in
Violence, killing - No one is going to win
So how can we put an end and make these wrongs right?
We need to start now, we need to stand up and fight
Fight for the future, For the youth of today
If we do not... so many more lives will be taken away
So start today; A Petition for Living
We have the paper, we have the pen. We do not need to be given....
The Power of one to create Future Living
