The Proposal

The Proposal

We walked together,

hand in hand.

on that lane,

who has a house in the end.

 

he opened the door ,

and kissed my hand.

he blindfolded,

and I didn’t knew what lie ahead me.

 

i was walking,

on the delicate glass bridge.

he opened my eyes,

and sat on his knees.

You are the change

You are the change

If you are not going to change,

then who will change?

If you are not going to make a difference,

then who will make a difference?

But we forgot that we are our society.

society doesn’t needs a change,

it’s you, it’s us who needs a change.

 

so don’t blame society for crimes,

because we are the one who commits them.

don’t blame society for being a racist,

because we are the one who behaves like racists.

 

If you are not going to change,

then who will change?

If you are not going to make a difference,

then who will make a difference?
