Be the change 
Be the change in what you wish to see 
You’ll see 
The difference that it will make 
Not just in your life 
But theirs 
Show your self you care
About you 
Your idea of this or that 
Help you get on track 
The world is made up of three types of people 
The doers 
The hold my hand’ers  
And the do it for me’ers 
Which are you allowing yourself to be? 
It is all a choice 
Use your voice 
To make a difference 
You never know 
Who you might inspire 
Believe in yourself 
I know that you can do it!
