The World Has Changed

The World Has Changed:

Wake up & smell

The possibility.

The world

Has changed:

It did not

Change

Without

Your prayers

Without

Your faith

Without

Your determination

To

Believe

In liberation

&

Kindness;

Without

Your

Dancing

Through the years

That

Had

No

Beat.

The world has changed:

It did not

Change

Without

Your

Numbers

Your

Fierce

Love

Of self

&

Cosmos

It did not

Change

Without

Your

Strength.

The world has

Changed:

Wake up!

Give yourself

The gift

Of a new

Day.

The world has changed:

This does not mean

You were never

Hurt.

The world

Has changed:

Rise!

Yes

&

Shine!

Resist the siren

Call

Of

Disbelief.

The world has changed:

Don't let

Yourself

Remain

Asleep

To

It.
