none so strong as an independent heart

stand up little boy, dont let his silence be your own.
deny death and its cruel hand, take strength in your survival.
forget the bitter taste of tears, show them no weakness,
and over come their mocking tongues

Never submitt but stand tall against your enemies and friends alike
blood will never lie, so take heart young one
dont let your eyes go dead like open wounds
see faith in yourself, focus not on that which will discourage you
your body will give up but your soul will live beyond
die with honor and pride against those who have no spine
see the darkness and make your light,
reach further then your body will permitt
patience will be your virtue in a world full of an eagerness to end.
be strong against the pillars of dispair that fall around you
and wash away the insults spit upon you

none so strong as an independent heart
