It’s up to me

It’s up to me

to save the world for him.

Stop the flood

from drowning his future.

Stop the fire

from burning his future.

It’s up to me

to choose right, shop right, buy right.

Feed right, eat right.

Read right, think right.

It’s up to me

to teach him to be kind, strong.

But not too strong,

to be a lover, not a fighter,

but the right kind of fighter,

who fights for rights.

He came to me by accident,

and now

it’s up to me

to get it right.
