Love is like a friendship caught on fire. In the beginning a flame, very pretty, often hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering. As love grows older, our hearts mature and our love becomes as coals, deep-burning and unquenchable. -Bruce Lee

In this time with society, everything has changed

Except maybe the pope, but reasons are still ranged.

People are scattered, dreams still shattered

With all this going on, what really matters?

Hand in hand, we must all take a stand

With our heads held high and our hopes to let us land.

It is time for a change, it is time to embrace

We must be ready to climb and finish this race.

Ladies are having daughters, men and men try to get married

Who are we to make them feel like a burden to be carried?

We have gone against our original image

And here we are having our own personal scrimmage.

We have to look past our past or else we will fall

If we allow this to keep happening, who would want to call?
