Virtue Spent


I will follow but only as long as I can lead.
I will listen but only as long as I am heard.
I will behave but only as long as I am made.
I will laugh but only as long as I mock.
I will appreciate but only as long as I need.
I will fight but only as long as I win.
I will submit but only as long as I endure.
I will hope but only as long as I fear.
I will love but only as long as I can stand.
I will be but only as long as I must.
