I’m tired of people saying,
You’re just one person,
You can’t change the world.
I’m tired of them telling you,
You’re too small to do anything.
I’m tired of them telling lies like that,
There not true.
They don’t know you.
They don’t know what you’re worth.
They don’t know what you can do.
The world can only see half of you.
It’s up to you,
To show them the other half.
It’s up too you,
To let them go on.
To show them they’re wrong,
And to live up to who you’re supposed to be.
Because you can be someone great.
I make it my goal in life to help people know that
There are people in this world who believe that the
would go on just fine with out them. Some believe
can't make a difference in this world. I want to
tell them, that, they can make a difference, that
they are important,
that they can follow their dreams. Think of your
where did they start out? In the garage, or in their
room, for most
of them. Think of the President, where did he start
out? Highschool, collage,
and look where he is now. So many people that
are in the history books,
started out with nothing. George Washington lead
the Revolutionary Army,
he lost most of his battles, and he easily could
have given up, but he didn't.
Instead he kept going, he won the war, America
has won freedom, and he,
became the 1st President. The men who fought in
that war were just as important,
the war could NOT have been won with out them,
America, would not have freedom,
without them. And most of them were farmers,
who didnt know how to fight.
You are important, no matter what you think. You
do make a difference,
and I hope you know that.
