If you can stand

Suspended in reality
like a drop in the ocean
Could I really make a difference
with only a notion?

One voice crying out
another joins in unison
and the masses gather
blocking out the horizon

Forty, fifty, sixty strong
They’ve been here all along
singing the same song
How could we have been so wrong?

Change is inevitable
and change is constant
Adapt and survive
or fade away into the haze

A longing for the past
will never bring about the future
But riding the wave of purpose
is the key to changing the world

If you can stand
it means you can walk
If you have a mouth
it means you can talk
If you have arms
it means you can hold
if you have ears
hear stories being told
