I opened my eyes to see the world I am in,
to look right into it’s eye.
To see it’s pain,
to see it’s happines,
And to hear it’s cries.
I could feel the chills crawling up my spine,
as if it was a spider crawling up it’s web.
It told me that everything wasn’t alright.
That there was more violence to come,
That there was more pollution to come,
and that there was more racism to come.
It was scared for the person I might be,
but it had hope for me.
Telling me to shine.
Telling me to the Light!
Cause even if the lights turned off,
there was a spark of light left.
