Anyway – A Postcard from TenaCity

Sometimes the wind and the rain keep blowing out the candle –

We’re going to keep lighting it anyway.

Sometimes the feedback screams and the sound system won’t cooperate –

We’re going to keep praising our good God anyway.

Sometimes the voice is hoarse, the fingers bleed, and the guitar won’t stay in tune –

We’re going to keep playing and singing anyway.

You see, my friends,
persistence
IS resistance.

So in the struggle
to be free,
rename your town.

Call it
TenaCity.
