Never Fall

Our promise we were miraculously given
And, we, the free will for it to realize
And from it nothing should have driven
We should have looked to the ultimate prize.

Today, there are forces, again, that it threaten
Our history shows how they were overcome
And with the stakes so high, should not weaken
We not be here if, in the past, to them did succumb.

And I must make the decision that these forces fight
And accept that this act carries no guarantee
All I need to do is to realize I follow others who did right
What sacrifice I make worth it if my society still free.

I am saddened that I thought so much progress made
Yet, there is this undercurrent that threatens it all
So, if I have to be one who will not let our promise fade
Then prove that love before hate will never fall.
