I’m Not Going To Forfeit This Life

I’m not going to forfeit this life
Grasping at reality along the way
Running headlong into risk
Finding out what the youth have to say
Nurturing growth & development
Truth remains after their neglected lie
Sweat falls from my brow – a start
We can’t let the dream of freedom die

Don’t Be Afraid

Don’t be afraid to get dirty

A little sweat will be good for you

Emerging out into the world again

Shining bright like only you can do

Don’t be afraid to be crazy

Some of us might already be

They’ll try to control you

When you were always meant to be free
