Rookie (Lincoln Park)


When you see a herd of Zebras Being attacked by a lion the lion gets the one it wants and then the rest of the Zebras just stand there watching and dont do anything.

When you go to school you see
Others being punished and teased
you want to help but thats not your friend being hurt
So you decide to turn and flirt
It goes on and on everyday
and the same action you display
Finally that day comes when the new kid
speaks up and saves the kid
you feel unsure inside
but you really have nothing to hide
Your just a Zebra in the herd
Watching and waiting doing nothing more
Everyone does it you think
but before you blink
your there helping and kid in need
now you feel better after doing a good deed
Your friends tell you, you did and good job
now you feel all happy and want to sob
for everyday it happens but your not always there to help
We all want something much much more then being Zebras in the Herd.
