I Need to Take a Stand

Location

The world is completely broken

I need to take a stand

I need to cease the joking

Put forth a helping hand

 

Grades are seriously low

Children are getting high

Those kids still need to grow 

I should stop asking why.

 

This 12 year old is pregnant

Her friend is sending nudes

Their outcomes aren't pleasant

Their future's surely doomed.

 

A 1 year old is swearing

A 3rd grader just got raped

This is the point I should really start caring!

Because this system isn't great!

 

Adolescents are smoking and drinking

With commercials egging them on

This is the point I need to start thinking

That these corruptions need to be gone!

 

A helpless girl is cutting

Because her friend has just passed

I can not keep on running

From the issues that can not last.

 

Stop passing this off to others!

Its time to take a stand!

I will help to be the driving force that will uncover

The demons infesting this land.

 

Our world is seriously broken

I have to give advice

My thoughts need to be spoken

Or the kids will pay the price.

 

I will help bring this world back together

One little piece at a time

There's no mount'n I can not weather

I just need to start the climb.
