by Joseph T. Renaldi
You are not here to speculate, to reverie, to drift,
You have difficult tasks and burdens to lift,
Avoid not the crisis - confront it, treat it as a gift.
Say not, ' The world is evil. Who is to blame? '
And twirl your thumbs and comply - oh shame!
Stand tall, speak out dauntlessly, this is not a game.
It is not relevant how deeply rooted the wrong,
How trying the obstacles, the crisis may be long,
Don't give up? The future brings a new song.
