    LIKE A HURRICANE

    My words will blow like a hurricane
    It will crash our minds and create a change
    To open up the freedom that’s still restrained
    And force out the hate that still remains

    My words will only articulate truth and light
    And lies and injustices, and the taking of rights
    My pen will be my new voice, because I will write
    Every minute, every hour, every day, every night

    My words will represent, the things I can’t speak
    It will take from the strong, and give to the weak
    It will take from the powerful and give to the meek
    It will share with the common and prove them unique

    My words will separate things wrong from grand
    And question all things we don't understand
    It will call everyone and say, “Take my hand”
    Prove there’s more to this life and make a stand

    My words will be the microphone set for the poor
    Reminding us that in order to make our hearts soar
    We must care for each other, our well-being’s assured
    And go back to the unity we all had before

    My words will be the pillar of all we can be
    It will open our goals and our dreams visually
    It will open our hearts to our own humanity
    And it will question our homage to God spiritually

    My words will be the soldier of a peace campaign
    It will bring about happiness and take away pain
    It will reveal our “could be” sunshine and calm out the rain
    My words will bring change like a hurricane​

    Sounds like some powerful words, words of change, understanding, and care. This was such a positive flow.
