HERE WE ARE
Eight years ago
We started the race
We are still keeping the pace
For we are always good to go.
Many were called
Few were chosen
The few were weeded
Yet we kept on.
Some were cut down in their prime
Some unceremoniously came to the end of their time
Some found better dreams to follow
Others deserted, their endurance's root were so shallow.
But here we are
By God's grace
Daily waxing stronger
Determined to finish the race.
