We Overcome

Inspired by Petteri Sainio's "We Overcome".

We Overcome

When the darkness slips away, and we look up at the sky;

We see the stars are dancing freely, and shower us with their light.

We never thought this day would come, so many words have been exchanged;

Our heads are now clear from the fog, and we no longer feel any pain.

Even with all the odds placed against us;

We overcame all obstacles.

We picked ourselves up and brushed off the dust;

I’d be damned to deny it was a miracle.

You say “Never give up, always go on”

“Even when times are tough, you must remain strong”;

I say “I’d follow you until the end”

I mean what I say, for you’re my only friend.

Even with all the odds placed against us;

We overcame all obstacles.

We picked ourselves up and brushed off the dust;

I’d be damned to say it was impossible.

We march out on the streets and chant out loud:

“We overcome, we overcome this oppression; we’re sick and tired, we will bring you DOWN!”

Pride fills our souls as we chant our motto: “We overcome, we overcome, WE OVERCOME!”

littlebite22: This made me think. About the world around me, about what I think of others. We rarely get to see or hear what others think, and this is such a great example of not judging a book by its cover. Also very well written.
