Seven years stood tall
Though short to be reckoned with
In the final scheme of things
Yet the impact of those years
Reverberated into eternity

Gentle voices called out
Echoing loudly in the darkness
Their message was clear:
“Bring home your honor
Even if you lose everything else”

So you stood like a warrior
Fought with courage for truth
Undaunted in the face of fear
Never one to change allegiance
As you fought through each battle

Now you are boldly standing tall
Like the years through which you came
Unashamed of who you are
Or what time has brought you through
And its impact on posterity
