Storms & Light

See, I wanna change the world

I wanna put on my cape and make everyone happy

And bring this huge rainbow across the sky

Not cuz I’m gay

But I realize you can’t see rainbows, if it never stops raining

And the sun never shines, on your part of town

And the puddles the kids wanna splash in

Are way too deep

And the waters too dirty 

And time stands still

We always harp on the dark days

Always told that black girls don’t cry

Always waiting on a storm

God forbid, we share our shine, and those puddles begin to dry

God forbid, we lend our light, and bring the sun to our own neighborhoods

See, I wanna change the world

One grey day, at a time
