I always had a rebellious Republican heart.
For those who have offended me
I forgive you.
I never meant to cause any wars or heartache
I just had to stand up for my people.
I fought for innocent lives that were taken away.
I shuck hands with those who unknowinly back stabbed me
They lied to me and left blood on my hands
This made me sad.
I stood proud and changed my way of thinking
To become the voice for those who were silenced and frightened.
I became friends with my enemies
Only because my spirit told me to do so
I can now rest knowing, that my people can live in peace.
