You are the Salt of the Earth

You Have to Spice Up Life

Inside us flows a mighty ocean
With forces seen and unseen
A silent invitation to courage
A muted call to bravery
And the salty metallic taste
of our blood tolling up
The charge to be iron tough
To persevere
And do great things
To preserve and spice up life
