When dreams around you shatter
When your world is full of pain
Take heart! Be strong!
Stand firm and rise again

When all the darkness shuns you
When your friends forsake your name
Don't cry! Fear not!
Stand firm and rise again

When shadows lay guilt on you
When the world says you're to blame
Be bold! Step forth!
Stand firm and rise again

When you've lost touch with reality
When you feel like you're insane
Behold! the Night is ending
Stand firm and rise again
Theme 20: Fortitude.

^_^ Yaaaaaay! This is another I like. It flows well, makes sense, the rhyming isn't forced . . . Contentedness!

This piece makes me happy, not gonna lie. It's a really nice inspirational piece, and I think it fits the theme spectacularly well. (And all I can picture is someone delivering it in a totally dramatic manner; think Braveheart-speech style.) :D

Hahaha, thanks! And that coming from someone who doesn't like poetry is just . . . I don't even know what, but it makes me really pleased. :D

Heh, I had actually thought of one line from the new Robin Hood (never seen it and kinda don't want to but I've heard this one line from the trailers) while I was writing this. I think it goes something like "Rise and rise again until lions become lambs."

You created a great mood here. I like the words and images you used to tell us that we shouldn't give up, even if it's hard, but to stay there with pride and go on.

Sounds like "Endless Night" from The Lion King (live stage version): We may lose our way; but if we remember who we are; we will rise again -- to greater heights, than before!! :w00t:

So true!! :nod:

KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK, writerwithasword; this is AWESOME!! :winner:
