The Light of the Mighty

The riotous foot thump
Of out of town brothers
Makes others believe
They have fists of their own,

From gracious beginnings
To sour misadventures
All lectures were lost
When the heads all fell down.

Gather round soldiers
And spit what you see,
If your glee comes in buckets
Just luck it and believe,

You were meant for this rumble
Let those fools see your smile
And while they soak it up slowly
Add guile and don’t grieve,

Some are gone,
Breathe,
You are here,
Heave up your heart,
It’s the start
Of your rise
And surprise
Is the light of the mighty.
