Sit or Stand



It’s an interesting thing to see

It’s like sleep walking in a dream


Everyone sees things that are wrong

But we all just turn a blind eye

And move right along


Does nobody really care

About the words

That move through the air


They change the way we think

and feel

But we are not allowed to use them

Because of a newsreel


We all have a choice

To decide whether or not

To use our voice


Using it the right way

Means listening first

Without influence or sway


We can open our ears

And let them breathe in the years

That show us what's right and wrong

Like listening to the words of your favorite song


The monotonous day to day

Will show you

The everyday people who

Smile

Wave

Say "hi"

And continue their day


We can go to the store

To say "hello"

To those wonderful people

Stocking the shelves

And running the show


We all are here for a reason

We have words

To express ourselves

And it is not treason


It is time for those

Who have idly sat by

To stand up

Say enough is enough

And give it another try
