I have the Right to Live!

Instead of delivering a prose poetry about my experience of being bullied by a professional, while I was in elementary, I am delivering a newly composed song, I have the Right to Live!, at the Human Experience Meet Up at The Beat Coffee House in downtown Las Vegas tonight @7pm.

Here it is, guys!

I HAVE THE RIGHT TO LIVE!

1)  Look at me; I’m different as you are!

     Look at me; I’m human as you are!

     You might not like me for a friend;

     You might laugh and scoff in the end,

     But look I’m human as you are

     Who has the right to learn and live!

Refrain:

     I have the right to live…

     Enjoy the life just as you do!

     I have the right to live…

     And learn all stuff that there’s to know.

     But world’s so indifferent

     Has eyes for differences.

     Won’t stop ’til you’re torn apart

     So where’s my right to learn and live?

2)  Hear me, please!  I want to live not die!

      Hear me now and understand it why!

      I did not choose to be this way;

      I like to live life everyday;

      But if you bully me around

      It seems I’m six-feet to the ground!

3)  Bullying is hurting us inside!

     Bullying will haunt you in the end!

     We have the right to live in peace;

     Please be a part for peace to reign!

     Let’s make this world a better place

     Enjoy the life that God has giv’n.

I hope the message of this song will open the hearts and minds of people, who think bullying is fun!

 

PEACE!!!!!!

Up Against Bullying Anthem Recorded last night!

 

The Up Against Bullying anthem, STAND UP!,  was recorded last night at The Human Experience Meet Up at The Beat Coffee House in downtown Las Vegas.  Since it was unrehearsed, I still am not sure how it would turn out.  Anyways, I am hoping for the best so that others could listen to its melody and use it with their anti-bullying campaign. 

Also, I have over a dozen songs on anti-bullying geared towards elementary, middle-school and high school students. However, a few songs have melodies that can be sang by adults. Besides these songs, I also have been writing anti-bullying poetry.  Hopefully, a book with accompanying cd would be the end-result of this.  Definitely, I wanted every school to have a student movement on Up Against Bullying.  

Bullying has caused harm to so many already.  Even professional athletes have been experiencing it. Still fresh is the one with the Miami Dolphins!  As the lyric of another composition advices: ” Don’t be so aggressive (aggressive)…In words and actions (aggressive)! …We all have equal right…to learn and have successful lives.  Respect is due to all.  Think twice and be smart this time!”
