They see the light shine through

Don’t let them taint your soul
Don’t let them corrupt your mind
They can never steal your essence
They can never steal your shine
You must stay strong and stand firm
You must smile wide, you know the truths they do not yearn
I promise, what you give will come back
I promise, hold your ground and the ground will hold you back
