There lies within each one of us
The choice to truly live,
To learn and grow tremendously,
To strengthen and forgive.
Our world calls to us angrily
"Give up the wasted fight!"
But deep within there shines the truth
That evil's never right.
And though the crowd proves maddening
Insisting we desist
Our course is straight, our aim is sure
And vices we'll resist.
For love proves greater than revenge
And kindness more than hate
Inspires floods of human strength
Unto a better fate.
