0209 Human Rights [17 September 1998]

Taken as you are,
Loved as you always will be.
Forgotten never in my life or others,
And hated only by your enemies.

Remembered as a hero,
Loved as a man.
You gave us hope,
You gave us a chance.

A man with an evil heart,
Brought forth tyranny.
Where once there bloomed peace,
Now withered depression.

Then you came along,
A man with a good heart,
Who cared not to be involved
But thought only of a way out.

You took our war
And turned it into liberty.
You took our hate
And turned it into a way.

Within months you changed
And with you we changed as well
Learning that we could
In a world that said “couldn’t.”

In the end
Victory graced itself upon our lives
And the man who was evil
Was banished from this world forever.
