Mission - Poem by Della Perry

On a mission, that I am, to right the wrongs that I see
To change the world, the evil I see
I can't do much, I can change that which is near.
I'll try to relay those old fears that I know so well.
I changed, I was strong, or maybe I'm the one who was wrong?
I don't really know, all I do know is I'm surviving
In this wasted world.
I just want to show it can be done, you can better yourself,
There are lights at the end of those tunnels
But you must dig deep inside yourself, pull yourself free.
Stop being the victim, for there will always be an abuser of some kind, fight them off, let's right the wrongs,
Not add to the list, let's change the world, bit by bit,
Part by part, the evil we meet,
All of us abused together, you and me, let's be free,
It is my mission, my vision,
For us all to be free.
