We Won’t Surrender

We Won’t Surrender
by Marylyn (9th grade)

Why do I keep on failing?
Back to the old things
Is there hope when
Misery is coming
It takes a million people with creative minds
To fill this empty cup with joy
We can do it
We can do it
Cause we are born for this
Yes we are born for this
We’re going to show them that
We won’t stand down
No opportunity will pass us by
We won’t surrender
Cause we are born for this
No one going to stop us now
We are born for this
