A few months ago Greenville High held a poetry competition for the best poem about “being the change.” Here is the winning poem and it was also read at the Black History Month Program.
Be the change,
whether boy or girl.
Be the change you’d like to see in the world.
Be the change you’d be proud to be.
Be the change you’d like everyone to see.
Being the change doesn’t cost you a dime, all you need is to change your mind and make time for time to get yourself in line.
Be the change by being your best.
Be the change by not being like the rest.
Be the change that you desire, that will make you a better person and take you higher.
All you need and all that’s required is a little fire to push you toward your dream because it isn’t as far as it may seem.
Be the change, dance to your own tune, because after awhile people will notice your change soon.
Be the change you’ve always thought,
but never sought.
Be the change by putting your pride aside.
Sit back for the ride as you transform into a
person that isn’t of the norm because you
became the change.
