Holding On

Ivy Rough Terrain

With the pressure cracks appearing
Where the stress is brought to bear
As the heat begins increasing
And there’s tension in the air

The expansion joints are suff’ring
And decisions must be made
Do we need to start explaining
Why we aren’t prepared to trade

Are there insults in our future?
Or will difficulties rise?
No, we will remain united
I can see it in your eyes

So we sit in meditation
On the troubles we’ve been through
And despite the opposition
We know what we have to do

It may be that this decision
Isn’t one we want to make
But we’ll act with dedication
And we will not ever flake

And with all our good intentions
We are standing proud and tall
We are standing here for justice
Knowing truth will conquer all
