Persuasive Essay Topic?

I'm a Sophmore in High School and we have to do a Persuasive SPEECH in front of the class, thats 2 at least 2 minutes long. I have no idea what to even talk about, which is weird for me. I'm a very deep thinker and I think about a lot of things, there are probably 20 topics that flow through my head every hour that I could write a speech on, but I just can't seem to think of any now that I'm ordered to do so. So I just need some help picking a topic, please don't let it be the usual stuff, like helping the poor, stop bullying, doing drugs, all that stuff. Thanks for your help, appreciate it! :D
