A better world

A better world is possible I can see it in the horizon
A better world is possible, that I have now set my eyes on
I’ve got my foot in, and the door has been forced open
To a better world, one we can all find hope in
I wonder if I could take your hand and we could stand strong
I know the damage has already been done
I hope it’s not too late for me to stop this wave that’s splashing
I hope it’s not too late for me to stop this wave that’s crashing
Drowning a majority, with decades of oppression
Until they can’t breathe – a phrase said in succession

I wonder if I can help you breathe again
A privilege we are not all lucky enough to retain
Let me give your lungs a break
From the air we have clouded with our mistakes
A better world is possible when we choose to fight
For a life where we can share equal plight
For now, let me relieve some of your pain
If I tell you that things will never be the same
If I could just take your hand
I know I won’t ever fully understand
But I promise to pave a better world for you
By thinking about my actions, in everything that I do
