The Testing
In the times of mortal men they say
We often hear of valor strong
Of maids of yore they also sing
Of love and hate and passions strong
They say in times of evil sore, they rise to heights above
In times of darkness black, they stand the test of fire
They say that men do shine when pressed
When squeezed do reach on high
Oh life they say ‘tis hard and cruel
Yet love can cure all hate
A woman’s smile may lift a heart
A touch of love can heal
Out of the night, the stars do shine
And darkness fades, that light will shine
The tears of joy shall come again
The heart will soar and voices sing
It is the time of such that comes
A time to search the soul within
A time of testing and of power
A time that all must take a stand
The choice is put before all men
The choice of what all life is for
Of many they shall fall we know
Of others bright they shine and stand
Like beacons they will burn up bright
A light to all that truth will win
And so each one shall stand-alone
Each one his choice to make
