give it another rise
another chance, another go
if not with devotion then friends of battle
there is too much history to forget
we are here together again
the chamber that once went up in smoke
a second pass with caution and determination
i know you’re not alone
you have her hand to keep and hold
the bravery to maintain it steady and firm
i applaud
all i ask, don’t erase me
i need you to put me back on course
the path to the righteous and fortitude
a mended wing and free
yielding all the beauty that once shared
i need to be strong
to keep the health of you and me awake
