Rebel


I am a rebel against torture

I am a rebel against pain

I seek an end to hunger

I seek an end to the shame


The shame that comes from knowing

all those children die without water

all those children die without names

all those children die from war


Why do men play their viscious games

why do those men pretend to serve God

when all they want is power over others

when all they see is a red mist of blood


I am a rebel against politics

I am a rebel against greed

I seek an end to robbery

I seek new ways to succeed


The needs of my child are sated

The needs of many more are not

All children were born equal

All should be safe, not shot


Why do we buy the rubbish

we then litter all around

why do we let the merchants

pollute us with the sound


The sound of quick hard sell words

the sound that masks whats real

the sound of till drawers opening

the sound as they thus steal


They steal our childrens futures

They hide the urgent needs to come

They want to keep our eyes closed

They want us to stay mum


Rebel against their cruel ways

Rebel against their future theft

Rebel until they come to listen

Rebel until we do our best


The best is not to squander

The best does not spoil the land

The best is taking care of all

The best is to make them understand


I am a Rebel - with a cause
