What's Right - Poem by Michael P. McParland

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.
