    To live truthfully in my purpose
    And continually in faith
    To maintain my own integrity
    as I run this earthly race
    Not to bow to unpopularity
    But be strong in his "Grace"
    To live truthfully for myself
    Until I draw my last breath!

    Not always going to please
    you for I "won't go quietly
    into the night", instead
    I stand firmly planted prepared
    to die and fight.
    To look always for the best in
    others until I see something
    less.
    Until I draw my last breath!

    Finding approval is not always
    demonstrative of personal
    success, it is the self satisfying
    feeling that you have passed
    the test. Give God the glory
    even when my Warrior spirit
    rages...to far removed for
    shackles to strong for cages.
    Until I draw my last breath!

    Somewhere among the crowd
    their are those who think as
    I and they will I remember when
    it comes my time to die.
    Not the nay sayers or the player
    haters or the ones who said
    "She's mean" or the ones who
    didn't recognize "I am still a
    Queen!"
    And I will not rest...
    Until I draw my last breath!
