Against all doubts, against all criticism
We will make a better country for ourselves
Despite the fears, despite the skepticism
We will bring hope for the next generation

Against injustice, fighting poverty
We will build a fair and loving nation
Despite any problems that may come
United we will face and tackle any opposition

This our time. This is our chance.
To have more than we could ever have hoped or dreamed
The likes of Wallace and Bruce
And all who fought with them are urging us on to complete their dream.

And with the many Scots who have gone in the ages before
They are looking down at this time with eager hope
Shouting “Come on Scotland, your time is now!
go for it Scotland make us all proud!”

The Man I want to Be

What is the definition of a man? What value has he? Is it measured in the size of his heart or in his muscle capacity? What kind of man do I want to be? A man of integrity. Who knows truth and and lives by it Who walks in humility and love. A man who's nature is...

Why I walk you home …

It may be due to some ancient code Written in my DNA From an almost forgotten notion of ages past When men were gentlemanly Maybe how I was brought up was a factor In why I carry out this deed Why whenever I can I like to make sure Someone gets safely to where they...
