I will bend,
but not break.
I will stand, but not on any pedestal.
I will tremble and fall, even cry out,
and my God will purge the soul.
I shall dance in my Autumn.
Sing louder than ever before.
Shout from the mountains of life,
Another runs this show.'
Wear my best smile.
The prettiest dress.
Love with passion.
Live with laughter,
and hold within my heart
