When no one else understands
then it’s time to stand—alone,
time for a rescue,
time to save the one you know best of all.
If not you saving you
who’ll save you
before you take the fall?
The answer is inside,
beside that space where strength resides,
in that well that holds more than you see on the surface.
It’s time to stand.
