Elements Save the Day

I move as quick as lightning
I’ll defend - I won’t be fighting.
My soul is as clear as air for me,
I have no pair when I’m angry.


I’ll turn red like fire
Then I’ll let it roll like a tire
Down my back as my true self comes back
Then I’ll flow just like water.


All these elements are
like my partners
When people are afraid
I’ll be standing. I’ll be brave.


As we move on
We will sing our song.
With our awesome band
Everyone hand in hand,
Everyone will take a stand.


As the elements
save
the
day.
