Sharing My Songwriting Gift (By James DeWitt)

Song “Who will you be? ”

Every day I meet, all kinds of people,
People from all walks of life….
Some non-believers, some are Christians, some are Muslim to….
Who’s beliefs should determine who they are to you….
While some are visible, others they are hard to see….
My question at the moment when we meet…. is Who will you be?

Will you be the Laughter I seek every day….?
Or will you be the Hatred that turns me away….?
Will you be the Smile that can remove my tears….?
Or will you be the Anger that invokes my fears….?
Will you be the Shoulder I need when I’m week….?
Or will you be the Rage I confront when I’m meek….?
Will you be the Sunshine that brightens my day….?
Or will you be the Dark Cloud that takes it away….?

In this penitentiary, there’s all kinds of people….
People from all walks of life.. now let me go deeper….
Some from Richmond some from Norfolk some from Newport News….
There’s some from out of state up in here to….
So many places, different faces that you’ve gotta see….
Take my advice and ask them when you meet.. say Who will you be….?

Will you be the Laughter I seek every day….?
Or will you be the Hatred that turns me away….?
Will you be the Smile that can remove my tears….?
Or will you be the Anger that invokes my fears….?
Will you be the Shoulder I need when I’m week….?
Or will you be the Rage I confront when I’m meek….?
Will you be the Sunshine that brightens my day….?
Or will you be the Dark Cloud that takes it away….?

Will you be..
That best friend that I haven’t met?
Or someone who I’d rather forget?
Will you be..
A face who will show me bliss?
Or a negative conversationalist?
Will you be..
A love that can be my guide?
Or another person filled with pride?
Who will you be..
That’s all I want to know….

Will you be the Laughter I seek every day….?
Or will you be the Hatred that turns me away….?
Will you be the Smile that can remove my tears….?
Or will you be the Anger that invokes my fears….?
Will you be the Shoulder I need when I’m week….?
Or will you be the Rage I confront when I’m meek….?
Will you be the Sunshine that brightens my day….?
Or will you be the Dark Cloud that takes it away….?
WHO WILL YOU BE?
