Speaking Out

I see pain in this world
and I speak out against it.
I see crime hidden around me
and I speak out to show it.
If not me, who?
But if I speak out,
maybe you will too.
I do not pass a starving child
or an injured animal.
I do not ignore,
I see
I speak
I change.
With my voice and my words
I fight for the world.
I fight for you.
And I hope that you will too.
