Child of the World

child_worldtitle
 
you are sometimes hungry
sometimes rich
sometimes your life is beautiful
sometimes it’s a bitch
you are the self
in search of itself
you are the one who helps
and needs help
you are the way
growing inside of me everyday
you are the path
you are the road
you are the one
ready to explode
you can’t keep it
inside anymore
you are the one
no one can ignore
you are the door
the link the key
that must restore
child
child of the world
you are the vision
the one born blind
the just the unjust
the wicked the kind
you need to unwind
you cannot be defined
child
child of the world
you are innocent
unformed wild
with outstretched arms
forming a smile
child
child of the world
you are the one who bleeds
the one who cries
blocked up inside
you are ready to rise
you work all day
to put food on the table
you belong to everyone and no one
you are so able
child
child of the world
you will stop destruction
hatred the war
you are the present
we are living for
you are the dreamer
you are the dream
you are the one
to silence the scream
the hope of tomorrow
the prayer of today
you are the path
you are the way
child
child of the world
bridge:
your hands
can shape the new world
new life
can touch your heart
you are the glue that holds us together
before we all fall apart
child
child of the world
you are the future
you want a radical change
you will make sense out of chaos
reunite the estranged
you will find a purpose
a reason a passion for living
make sense out of it all
you are the meaning of giving
child
child of the world
