Speak

I can't erase the past 
But I can write my tommorow  
I shall give while I'm here 
Because this time is borrowed 
I will learn to love 
Even those that are shallow 
I will learn to lead 
Those that will follow 
I will preach to everyone 
Even if it falls on def ears 
I will speak the truth even in the face of fear 
I will speak the words he wants me to teach 
The ones that will learn will continue to preach 
They shall smile at the millions that they managed to reach  
Speak to all the scholars that are eager to learn 
Then they'll save lost souls so no one may burn  
Speak to the ones that are still asleep 
For when they awaken  
Then we will succeed

    I practice no religion... I consider myself more spiritual I believe in a higher power... I pray I just don't follow any books : )
