Don't expect that others will understandDon't expect they'll give you a handDo expect that on the other sideYou see their thoughts as fading demands Don't expect that you won't falterDon't expect your nights won't be longDo expect that the time it takesBuilds the character needed to make you strong Don't expect you'll never feel like giving upDon't expect at times you won't see the prizeDo expect that your fight is worth the painWhen you finally look in the mirror and realize... You expect to be free
