Forward

In the beginning, there was darkness.
There was no room for sense,
No room for differences.
But one day, a light suddenly appeared.
There was laughter and tears,
Celebration and mourning,
The fallen and risen,
But through it all, there was progress.
From the negative came the positive,
From the past, the future.
And though we might not be where we to be,
We must stand
Run
Fight
Sweat
Bleed
Until there's nothing left
Except Love, Peace, and Understanding.
