Watch Us Shine

Location

 

There is change

There is inspiration

There is hope left in these young bones.

 

I am a kid

Grown up too fast in social expectations.

I am a kid

Watching others do the same.

 

I can thrive

We can thrive

Just gotta find the drive

 

You ask me what I would change

Let me tell you what

I would wring the throat of social pressure

Watch wither and fry

 

Put the young girl in her place

Tell her she got wings on which to fly

Strike the boy across the brain

Show him there is no need to hide his cries

 

I can thrive

We can thrive

Just gotta find the drive

 

 If it only took a switch

I’d turn it up all night

 Watch these little boys and girls

Discover and spread their shine
