My Questions about “Changes” by Tupac Shakur

The poem “Changes” by Tupac Shakur makes me ask myself the same question. Will we ever truly have a change in our world? The question probably won’t ever be answered because we never know how the next generation will be. Every day people get killed, hurt, harassed, bullied and much more and many people in power don’t do anything about it. So we have to stand up and do something. This world is left in the hands of youth. We don’t see the change that we need to see.

In the line “I’d love to go back to when we played as kids” Tupac was showing that when everyone was a kid it was better. When you were younger you didn’t understand the majority of stuff that was going on. Life seemed so innocent. Running around in the park screaming, laughing, and playing. But now that we are older we understand how bad this world actually is and we all wish it wasn’t this bad. We all wish we can just go back to when we were kids and wanted ice cream, and go to the park, play tag and hide & seek, to be with friends and simply have fun. Not fight for something that we have to fight for because the government doesn’t want the change that we need.
