When trials come like furious wind to blow you down,
To tear your tender heart and have your tongue -- a pawn.
Be strong and fight for liberty and equity;
Not by your arms or guns but by your ink and words.

No one have won a war through threats and tyranny;
Nor cannon balls and missile bombs or through by swords.
The patriots have shed their blood upon the war;
That none has ever won but only left a scar.

But there's a war where only words are in conflict;
Unlike the swords it pierces deep and will inflict --
The greater and long - lasting pain that last for years,
Or decades; even or till death and that is why;

When trials come like furious wind to blow you down;
To tear your tender heart and have your tongue -- a pawn.
Be strong and fight for liberty and equity;
Not by your arms or guns but by your ink and words.

Fight these FEARS!
Aye! Say! Aye!
