Opportunity Poem by Eric Schojan


america the brave, but is it america safe?
wake up every morning, finding this isn't the case
lookin for the love and im not giving up the chase
the way people treat each other man this shit is a disgrace
it wont be fixed over night but i intend to keep my pace
and when i leave this world i pray someone will find my trace

love and positivity are all we really need
if it doesn't happen in my life i will try my best to plant the seed

take it and keep it going, keep the love spreading showing
its sad when you cant count on it when the hate is all thats growing
make our life about the love and there's no doubt we will start glowing
gleam it into others eyes make a difference without knowing

love and positivity are all we really need
if it doesn't happein in my life i will try my best and plant the seed

whatever happened to the rule that we used to consider golden?
treat people how you want to be treated, love is the sculpture i am moldin
instead people expect respect when their only being harsh and cold and
makin negativity and hate prove to be our worlds only gold and
makin the spread of love and laughter be my poetry's only goal man

love and positivity are all we really need
if it doesn't happen in my life i will try my best and plant the seed

what others are feeling is just something we can never know
but that our differences don't matter is what we can start to show so
now we have a chance to change, an opportunity we can't blow
and i'll try to start it over with my words and with my flow, know

love and positivity are all we really need
if it doesn't happen in my life i will try my best and plant the seed

people killing people will it ever really make sense? ?
but its not about what they do its how you can make a difference
and we should all help to change no matter what we feel the expense
feels like the door is shut so lets create another entrance.
