My father always told me I can't change people

 

I can only change myself

 

If I had the power....

 

I would change the girls on the playground who thought they were cooler

 

I would change the teacher who thought my math problems needed a straighter ruler

 

I would change the boyfriend who left me because he had an addiction

 

And I'd change the messy roommate who leaves rude refridgerator notes of fiction

 

I would change my parents stress and their hypertension and aging skin

 

And even change my grandma so she could feel happy again

 

While I'm doing so much changing I might as well not stop

 

Afterall, with all this changing power

 

I can go to the end of the earth to make my change POP

 

I would change Hitler to be a nicer man

 

I would change every person who  ever shot a gun to someone with a peaceful plan

 

I would change the first man infected with HIV...

 

To be a man with clean clean blood

 

I would change anyone who ever suffered to be a happy human in love

 

But my father always told me I can't change people

 

I can only change myself

 

I can't change people

 

What I WILL change is myself

 

To be a voice for the other people

 

A voice to end all suffering,  HIV, and bullet wounds

 

A voice to tell my parents I love them how they are

 

But don't get hypertension over selling the house or the car

 

A voice to speak to many things, especially myself

 

To tell me to stop dreaming and to start changing human health
