We listen to politicians promise to end poverty
We hear preachers plead for money to send people to evangelize
All we hear is talk of change
All we listen to are speeches filled with empty promises
And never do we see anything being done
So shut your mouth
Offer to buy lunch for that homeless man you see every day
Donate the clothes you do not wear anymore
Listen to those who trust you with their secrets
Stand up for those who won’t stand up for themselves
Stop talking about changing the world
Stop making promises
Shut your mouth and
just Do Something
response to the prompt "the world would be a better place if..."
