I AM THE VOICE OF A WOMAN




i AM THE VOICE OF A WOMAN

I am the voice of a woman
With a very caring heart,
The troubles in this world
Are tearing me apart.

I want to stand up and be counted
To storm and never cease
Until the world for our children
Becomes a place of peace.,

Alone my voice is quiet
And my tears fall on hard ground,
But if we join together 
Then strength in numbers is found.

We can challenge the Politician,
The Professor and the Police,
We can join hands around the world
And we can pray for peace.

We can fight for freedom,
For justice for our brother,
By taking some action
We can care for one another.

We can try to change the laws
So that our hearts can rest,
We shall stand tall and strong
If we are put to the test.

Let’s hope that by linking hands
In love around the world,
Freedom’s sweet flag
Will one day be unfurled.
