Hold to belief that what you say
The words falling out of your mouth
You mean in some sort of way.
Hold to the steadiness of your heart
When someone is dancing on the strings
And they just won’t go away.
Hold to all the principles
Your ancestors held so dear
For so many years.
Hold to the people through this world
That brought you a moment of happiness
Hold to the rock that steadies you
That you know will be there
Through thick and thin of your life.
Hold to the truth you know is within you
The one that begs for reconcilliation
The one you cannot cut out with a knife.
Hold to the love you know is in your heart
The love you have for humans, for animals
For everything upon this land.
Hold firm to the ideals you believe in
That you have looked through
That are banned.
Hold to the sentiment of the people
Through right, wrong, just or injust
Because without that, we rot.
Hold to the papers you read daily
Not for what they say
But for what they do not.
