Give me the courage

Give me the courage to live well

Give me the courage to help others

Not through the sacrifice of my life

But through trying to survive

And spreading the truth

Of those wrongful deeds

Of which others do conceive

Of hate, discrimination, war and greed

The oppression of others

That leave humanity in need

Give me the courage to speak out

To save our environment

The voice to speak out

And help save other species

There is no sense in just giving up your life

And doing this in the name of right

If you are just going to be forgotten

Within a short space time

I see nothing but futility and waste

In martyrdom

The courage is to choose to continue living on

And surviving so you can ensure the message is strong

One love, one peace, one compassion

And one equality fit for all.
