My Battle Cry
by Phillip Cooke

The battle has already been won!
Don’t go countin’ me out!
I only have begun to live
Success is the best revenge!
Straight-up action
Less talk
This jungle I live in
I live a funny brave life
My happy fire
You want the motion, you gotta move
Awaken protest
The battle scars of resilience
You can’t stop me (I’m on the move)
Sounds like it’s on the outside
The bird’s gotta fly
The sweet nectar of protest
Hard work pays off
Peaks and troughs
You can’t stop THE VIBE

Success is the best revenge!
