Sometimes we are only as free

Love is not endlessly tolerating

Those that berate criticize and demean
Is not endlessly putting up with ridicule
Is not always coming away feeling unclean

Sometimes fire is necessary
To take it all back down to the source
Sometimes lightning and thunder
Are part of walking a courageous course

You do not have to lose control
To put an end to degradation and shame
You may have to risk and take a chance
You may have to with faith face the pain

Stand up for yourself stand up for truth
Stand up for those for whom you deeply care
Draw the line say it straight out
Sometimes we are only as free as we dare
