I stood my ground
And refused to give way to their rule
For while I am but a single meek being
I am not one to be called a fool.
As the world around me crumbles
I shall not sit by and wait
While I watch the place that I love become
A being that with the slightest touch dissipates.
I, who am willing to give up my life
For the sake of what I believe
To create hope that will never die
So there will be no need to grieve.
My passion may be unparalleled to others
And while I may be the only starter
I’ll never simply lay down and die
So I will just have to be a martyr.
