True Strength

You’re my hero, my love,

throwing your heart and body

into the fires of condemnation

holding yourself up

in a searing spotlight

to do what you went there for

what they need you to do.

To fight, putting all else aside,

and to win, to build a future

better for many than what is now.

You’re built from true strength

to withstand such flames.
