I would be true, for there are those that trust me,
I would be pure, for there are those who care,
I would be strong, for there is much to suffer,
I would be brave, for there is much to dare.
I would be friend to all the foe, the friendless,
I would be forgiving and forget the gift.
I would be humble, for I know my weakness,
I would look up, and list, and laugh, and love.
