You did not settle!

settle-image-3

In violent hours

Fending off pelting showers

You did not settle

 

You surfed the wave

Climbed the towering tree

You did not settle

 

In smoke-filled rooms

Care-less days and lonely nights

You did not settle

 

You carried with strength

The heavy load of a child

You did not settle

 

In unequal worlds

Victim of indignity

You did not settle

 

Colors have changed

But Black and White remain

Why should you settle?

 

Heroes have risen and fallen

Because they would not settle.
