Only one wish, one wish only?
I guess I would have the wish that would stretch through the categories
The only thing I could think of is the high level of fear these days
That alway seems to be near when a change is arising
I try to understand why the brave speak out face to face
Cowards create twitter lists about the pet peeves that disgust them or how they are gonna say this
and that when..
What happen to us?
We use to be a nation of the brave
Martin Luther King Kind Of Brave
Abraham Lincoln Kind of Brave
Harper Lee Kind of Brave
We said what we meant, face to face
We wrote our words with our lips
All because the dream of how much our world's potential exist
without an aspiraton of being famous or setting a record
A reality show of his or her own is enough to shoot pass our nerves to get our own
Yet, when it comes to taking responsibility of their words the episode is unheard of
A fight between two balls of twirling fears lives in the body of two enemies
A gun to settle this, is the thought of a walking fear
, but guns could never settle this
Frustration because mother hates and father left
Love someone and hope they'll love you back is the only way you can overcome that
Don't hide your bruises and let them grow old because that's the doorway where fear beholds
I'm sure Harper Lee had her fears and she told her story probably in fear
, but she overcame it by not allowing it to hold her back
She created a name for a story to bring on people who would never read a book about racists
" To Kill A Mockingbird, " was the story back then
, but we have become the generation of Mockingbird killing a Mockingbird
What ever happen to family?
America, the family not afraid to love
The family who learned to love through hate
If I had one wish I wouldn't change that
I wouldn't change my background for nothin'
Yea it wasnt all green and roses but I write to overcome it
I have fear but thank God for the potential of being fearless
All because an unknown named beatened ancestor got my name
, and just because i have it I can't live in shame
I wear my blood, sweat, and tears on my shoulder even if it drips on the page
If we continue to let our pain make us fearful, accomplishment can't be in our dreams
A horrid past can only be a treasure if we be proud of our name
" I'm John and I have shame. "
" I'm Melody, the victim of rape. "
" I'm Hope and I've been told no. "
" I'm Henry and I'm an addict. "
" I'm Carrie and I've had to live with racism. "
" I'm Patricia and I have control issues "
" I'm Nia and my father wasn't in my life. "
" I'm Eric and my mother didn' love me right. "
" I'm Danajai and I'm not ashamed of my name. "
" I'm Uri and I dropped out of school. "
" I'm Gil and my brother was killed. "
" I'm robert and I have nightmares about the war I was in. "
" I'm thomas I had cancer but I conqered it. "
Fear, is the biggest disease of our society
If we dream bigger, work harder and come up with solutions
We can overcome it!
If you're shamed of your name, you hold yourself back
We're human, and if I had magic I would make the world realize that.
