"Love is not running or giving up, it's standing and fighting for every moment."

BOUDICEA

Mine is a rare gift

But my gift is a curse

I love freely and fiercely

I am loyal but free

Like Queen Boudicea

There is a warrior inside me

I fight to love

I fight to understand

Not to be understood

If only there was such a man

One with warrior in his blood

To fight to love

And love me alone

Not treat me like an option

The way a dog treats his bone

WARRIOR

"I AM THE FIGHT!"

"I AM THE FIGHT!"

"I AM THE FIGHT!"

I cried

My weapons of love and hope

Are sword and spear

I have no armor

I have no shield

Love is a war

Made to be a risk

That is why I stand before you

Naked and bared

With my eyes ablaze

And love and hope in my fists
