Us and them.

When the days are tough
And nights too dark to explore;
Will you be there to protect me;
Will you fight for me like you did before?

When they come from another land,
And take me far away;
When they tie me down in shackles,
Will you at least try to make them sway?

She took a moment.. maybe a few;
Turned around, as though waiting for her cue.
“I can fight the world for you”, she slowly said.
“… but I can’t fight you for you.”
