The Power

Encouraging the power of children and youth is part of Karim’s work in the world. He founded “The Rap Camp” which helps kids to express themselves musically and poetically. Karim says, “Old people are where it’s at, but young people are the future. I say this because I feel that our society has forgotten the wisdom and guidance available to us in our elders. That being said, young people are also where it’s at, because when they are inspired nothing will stop them from reaching their goal.”

Lyrics:

Youth can move the world
​Youth can move the world when in action (4X)

They take your mind and they’re attacking it
They’re just some blood suckin’ money-hungry Draculas
Yo they say that life is tough, aint no way that you can battle it
And put you in a cloud of confusion; labyrinth
So now you’re jaded, dreams so faded
Say you’re livin’ that life, but really you’re livin’ wasted
This is a digital age, don’t be a digital slave
Don’t gotta sacrifice your life to be brave
They think that if you’re young then your brain you can’t use
So they make fake realities that they hand you
And stuff it in your ears as if you can’t hear
The truth.
The power’s in the hands of the youth!

Say:
Remember The Báb, He was a young man
He gave up His life to promote The Cause
Remember Anís, he was a young boy
He gave up his life to promote The Cause
Remember Badí, he was a young man
He gave up his life to promote The Cause
Remember Quddús, he was a young man
He gave up his life to promote The Cause

There’s people gettin’ rich with the hype and the fall back
Over the transient things that we gawk at
Tell me where the line of consuming stops at
When the value of what is priced high isn’t all that
It’s probably made by child in Vietnam
Or a girl in Cambodia that’s workin’ till the dawn
So the thugs from Thailand don’t try to buy her little sister
Driven by the tears of her mother when she kissed her
Goodbye/
But yeah, I guess you’re lookin’ kinda fly
With all that fresh gear that you just buyed
I mean bought/
What’s the vocabulary I’m taught
Swag, swag, it’s scary is it not?
Or is it just me, am I going crazy
Isn’t it wrong what they’ve done in Iran with BIHE?
I guess that freedom everywhere’ a silhouette
Over there they can’t study, over here we’re still in debt

Say:
Remember The Báb, He was a young man
He gave up His life to promote The Cause
Remember Anís, he was a young boy
He gave up his life to promote The Cause
Remember Badí, he was a young man
He gave up his life to promote The Cause
Remember Quddús, he was a young man
He gave up his life to promote The Cause

They think that if you’re young then your brain you can’t use
So they make fake realities that they hand you
And stuff it in your ears as if you can’t hear
The truth.
The power’s in the hands of the youth!

Say:
Remember Táhirih, she was a lady
Remember ‘Abdul-Bahá when he was young
Shoghi Effendi, he was a young man
Remember ‘Abdul-Bahá when he was young

Youth can move the world when in action
The power’s in the hands of the youth.
