There will be times in life when you must stand,

       And draw on character to make you tall,

Find the courage to raise your hand

       While all around you fade and fall.

When the battle rages hard,

       And you’re betrayed by those you trust,

Strengthen nerve and raise your guard,

       And be the one whose heart is just.

Let the mirror hold no fears,

       When you gaze upon its face,

For that reflected through the years,

       Is the truth that marks your place.
