Music: Birdy - People help the people
Devon Gundry - At the top of my lungs


She cries out her song of agony
and beauty

in such harmonious tones
reminding me of the existence of my heartstrings

The sweet-hearted child
that is taught to hate

The energetic and intelligent youth
that is ignored and branded as a nuisance

The adult that deludes herself
that she needs to be child-like to be loved
that he needs to act without boundaries or love
to achieve success

These cages we lock ourselves in
definitions of what human nature is

numbing us from our true selves

To change the world
is to inspire the hearts of individuals
to love and strive for better
to create a community that
embraces, loves and nurtures unselfishly
to build social systems and structures of governance
that are based on duty and service
not power and competition

She cries out her song of agony
as we build beauty
in the ashes of her old life

She, the human race

Well written, a rhythmic sense.
