Above The Crowd


Trials and tribulations signify who we are
Begotten not made by a comet or star

Whispering willows from afar
Try to release fireflies from the jar

Maligned good people want redress

A few raise their heads above the crowd
Trying to be heard but not too loud

A promise on paper placed in a box
Hoping the outcome won't be a shock
