To be

If I am to be who I must be
Then walk with me

If I am to achieve what I must achieve
Then fight with me

If I am to give what I must give
Then love me

If I am to accept what I must accept
Then forgive me

But don’t punish me with your words
That bite chunks from my flesh

Flog my shortcomings
Lest I forget

My sins are my own
I am accountable to none

No man is my judge
No bond my prison cell

Love me for me
My loyalty you will have won

If we are to become what we must become
We must stand as one.
