Uprising, Revolution, War and Strife

Within the chronicles of history
spirit and valor in quest there be
Annals of time past and now
freedom and peace in plea in vow
Uprisings, revolution, war and strife
to mark anew day's purpose and life
Moments, days, years numbered and in memory cast
Held there be the Presence and light everlast
It is resolve that humanity calls to be known
within the grasps of faith, love and TRUTH be it shown.
