There’s a weapon that’s stronger than steel,
It’s a dangerous thought that makes you feel.
It’s an idea that keeps you up at night,
It is something that you just can’t fight.
The fear, it lurks in all of us,
Causing us to lose our trust.
Turning us into strangers,
Showing us unknown dangers.
There’s no more constant motion,
No more waves in the ocean.
Life has become a smooth pond,
Once strong relationships an unsecured bond.
Minds are as empty as the streets they wander,
Every single action we ponder.
There will come a time after this,
A time when we realize what went amiss.
A time to rebuild and to learn from mistakes made,
A time when we leave the shade,
When our memories will eventually fade.
Let’s fight this weapon that’s stronger than steel,
Let’s keep those dangerous thoughts at bay and not make them real!
Let’s work on this fear that’s keeping us paralyzed,
Let’s bring a wave to the ocean and be energized!
Together we can make this future real,
Together we can live the ideal!
Let’s reach out a hand and show some trust,
Let us all adjust!
There’s nothing we can’t achieve,
As long as our hearts are open,
As long as we believe!
