There is hope for tomorrow
But work to be done today
With some lingering sorrow
Amidst the battlefield fray
And we will make no pretense
Of attitudes quite sublime
While walking thru forest dense
As upward, onward we climb
We do not know the ending
Only that it will be good
While we are slow ascending
Into renewed childhood
