We Will Rise

Spirit Sunrise

In this time of blatant corruption from greed and abuse of power, people are awakening to try to take back control of our world. I can barely contain my desire for justice and peace through equality.


This is the time, when we will rise.  There are wrongs, to be made right.

We stand together. We walk today.  We won’t be silent,  or bow to hate. 

Caring for each other grows the heart to show the way.

We want leaders to serve us all.   The rule by money has got to fall. 

It spreads the lies that fill our heads.  Someone profits from all our dead.

Equal education will reveal the truth they bled.


There is one thing that all of us share, the earth and water is free as the air.

It isn’t yours.  It isn’t mine.  It’s ours to give to children’s lives.

What will we do to make it better?  Will we care for their future now?

We all are different, but love the same.  Our hearts are equal, so is our pain.

There’s many problems on every side, but there’s solutions through compromise. 

Bring down the walls to see our world and share our lives.
