My Flame

Turn around, face me
let me look into your eye, tell you what I see
 You need something to believe
 They've left you behind
 Treated you like you weren't their kind
 So I'm here to make you shine
 I've helped you before overcome the odds
 To get away from everyone take my flame it does the job
 Equality is what you're lookin for
 My flame will give you everything and more
 You've looked to different remedies
 Religion, Culture, even Family
 But all you needed to do was look to me
 People's words acan hurt and have killed
 I'll be that shield
 Shield you from those bullies
 Fight to have you live perfectly
 It sounds like a lot
 But it's not, its what Im willing to do to get you to the top
 To see you with that spark again
 Makes me feeli accomplished, That I helped my best friend.
