Fall and rise again
Let boy become man
Baby girl, rise this day.
Come what may
We strive and we push and pray
Muscles taunt with anxiety
Stretch to form, beauty captivated, owned.
Blood and soil
Let what we live for be etched and carved
To be remembered, read and strewn
On the banks of calm seas after the meaning of life becomes evident
Let on this day and a day of your choosing
Let it be known in your heart and in your soul
Live and die this way
Find solace in this day
Let it be known that you know what it means to live on a reason worth dying for.
