What's Right

I know what's right.
I will carry on and fight.
Through all this pain and blithe.
Though all seems lost like a holocaust.
I cannot give up lest all be lost.

Though it may be hell, I will not dwell.
On all this misery that brings us down,
I must not frown.
What's right is to fight for what is true.
We must not give up or we'll be through.

So on we march with righteous pride.
Knowing we'll defeat the lie.
On and on some may die.
Through our blood we justify,
all we know to be true.

The bold will cry, the weak are snide.
We need not have fear or hide.
In the end they'll truly see,
that what is right we must defend.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
