Raise Your Voice

In a world that seems darker

It’s time to push violence aside

It’s time to stand up

Because we can no longer hide

 

It’s time to let light through

To help one another succeed

For friendship and kindness

Is what we all need

 

So stop the yelling

Put down your fists

When you see someone struggling

Make it your job to assist

 

Don’t ignore the weak

Help them become strong

Choose to do what’s right

Even when others are doing what’s wrong

 

And where you see injustice

Raise your voice and be heard

For nothing is sadder

Than hope deterred
