Do I wear a badge of honor
or conceal my shield of faith?
Do I let my light pierce the
darkness with searing screams
or hide it under a bushel?
It’s hard to know which- in a world
distracted by bright and shiny things
Its hard to know how -in a world
where strength is measured in
material wealth and the power it brings
