With a burning purpose, I strive forward
to secure a freedom and liberties
never before felt by common men.
This purpose burns like a flame!
One, that greed cannot extinguish!
Not for applause or fame!
Perhaps not even for me..
But, for them!
The sons and daughters so fragile,
the enslaved, the sick, and the poor..
To awaken chivalry that has faded!
To restore the pursuit of happiness
to every last human on this planet!
The blood I am bleeding.
The tears I am shedding,
washing away all that is vile,
that comes from oppression,
the pain from walking hundreds of miles.
The smiles from knowing..
Whether alive or dead,
this vision I hold dear,
WILL LIVE ON!
Therefor, I fight..
With No Fear..
This battle will be won!
