Our Lot

Before we reach the morning must get through the night
And brave the roughest seas before finding the safety of the shore
So be willing to face what is wrong to do what is right
Our history made more by struggle than the peace we yearn for.

For peace is not our right but comes with a cost
Paid in tears, sacrifices and so much suffering
But we should never think too high or all is lost
It is not Heaven's hand but ours this promise bring.

And the quietest days once the worst storms knew
The love we know once faced so much hatred
But, it is only through our spirit these moments get through
The goodness we find only when, facing evil, unabated.

And what dies now was, once, most alive
While this earth, from nothingness, was born
So, paradise a promise for which we need to strive
It is our lot that peace be constantly won.
