The Good Fight

 If I fight the good fight
 with truth and honesty,
 and lose the battle

 If I enter an innocent plea
 and justice turns a blind eye to me
 [tho truth stood behind me ]

 I will not accept it as defeat
 but as a battle between good and bad
 that was meant to be.

 It is by the examples we set
 that the young learn life lessons
 they will never forget.

 Let the old lead wisely, the young
 follow their wisdom and youth will
 grow up to be defenders of truth
 and honesty.
