Listen darnit and listen hard!
Catch the echo in the room bouncing off walls
Echo so heavy, it weighs on your thoughts and feelings
The echoes of human struggle and disparity amongst peoples
Blue, brown, green people, all of us involved
Everyday people faced with issues of inequality and injustice with no help
Everyday people with a heart to learn but no one to teach
The echoes of their struggles reverberating like waves
Waves of people forced into need without help
In our presence are the millions of voices pressed hard against their will
His cries, her cries, our cries...
Our echoes so faint from exhaustion it disappears into thin air
These are the faithful called upon to hoist the flag high in the air
Our citizens under duress and now summed to...
Provide bread on empty stomach
Provide leadership to young ones while himself barely surviving on faint hope...
On the mere chance that you might hear his story and take him under your wings
'They' before us, the generation tomorrow
'They' the meek, the weak ones amongst us crying for survival, crying for justice
Your free services brings hope
It wipes away a tear
Not a friendly world
Not a friend in the jungle
But your love opens your heart to us
And give us a friend who we never had or had no other means of having
You taught me math and changed my life and demanded nothing in return
And you took my case and defended me and demanded nothing in return
Bless you if you volunteer your service to those unfortunate ones who cant afford it
Your motto: No 'will' abandoned
My prayer: Thy 'will' be done, oh Lord
The many cries for help with outreached arms you touched
Our thanks and gratitude to you extends to your generations
