Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.
-- Theodor Seuss Geisel (Dr. Seuss)


Yearning for Justice


Yearning for Justice

Give me a yearning for justice
And a cry for a broken heart
I am only one and
I can't change the world, but
Here, in me
the change should start

Give me a yearning for justice
And a prayer for the gift of tears
'Cause I see a million starving
In my living room, while
My eyes are dry
My conscience clear...


From my sheltered life I
Hear of children crying while
Families walk the streets
For some shelter they'll hope
While in my shelter I know
I'll be fast asleep
Give me a yearning for justice
Just the ability to feel
'Cause I've never known a day
Of cold or hunger pain, please
Help me know the need is real

Give me a yearning for justice
And a cry for a broken heart
I am only one and
I can't change the world, but
Here, in me
the change should start...

Meanwhile, consider it a museum piece from the early web).
