The lies our neighbors unearth,
we share with friends like us
We fight about who matters
and abandon common trust
We’re nowhere near United,
we've got a long, long way to go
but let’s fight for needs in common
it’s the only way we grow
It's time we figured out
the common needs we can fulfill
Rich or poor or middle class,
our needs are similar still
Is it greed that we need?
Or do we need to have enough?
Do we need hope and love and empathy
or do we get that from having more stuff?
Do we need the chance to make a living
and provide for our families?
Or do we need grabbing all that we can get
while others pray for these?
Do we need to see humanity
in every woman, child and man?
Or do we need to sneer
at those who failed at their plan?
Do we need democracy
made better through the years?
Or some other ocracy
that will cleanse our sins & tears?
Do we need the kind of power
to do whatever the hell we please?
Or do we use the power we have
to lift the downtrodden off their knees?
We control the narrative
now more than it’s ever been
A habit forms in 30 days,
each day’s practice syncs it in
So, before you say it, ask yourself,
“Am I saying this to build him up?”
Before you do it, self reflect,
“Am I doing this to fill her cup?”
Say “Thank You” and really mean it
every morning as you wake up
Ask “What’s my purpose?”
till you no longer have to make up
reasons why you hate yourself.
Then live on purpose, don’t break up
commit to let love take us up
to a better USA
learning to love all of itself.
Can I count on you to practice this
for 30 days and then
You’ll speak love, do love, live love
and that’s the only way we’ll win!
So since we've tried so many things
except the habit above
Let's use our power to unify
and start asking "How Bout Love"
Join us on this journey to a better America
Be inspired and reminded to create a more perfect union
