And wut "u" all bout.
"4" yo communities' need of support.
"4" yo schools to be given adequate tools
to research and discover the true direction of north.
"4" people in the House of Representatives
to identify with yo experiences.
"4" childcare to be free and accessible
to all frenz and relatives.
"4" affordable housing and not gentrification

"4" programs to continue offering recreational and artistical projects
to let someone express through a positive outlet.
"4" the media to highlight young people's contributions and efforts
to be more involved in the decision making in the government.
Voice yo needs and concerns
When ever and where ever "u" can.
Write yo words down.
Sing yo abstractions out loud.
Paint yo scenic situations.
Create yo peace, sweeping across the nation.
Step Up! Run Up! Show Up!
Tell them Wuts Up! Tell them Wuts Goin Down!
And Wut "U" and Yo People All Bout!
