Standing for what you believe in,

Regardless of the odds against you,

and the pressure that tears at your resistance,

...means courage


Keeping a smile on your face,

When inside you feel like dying,

For the sake of supporting others,

...means strength


Stopping at nothing,

And doing what's in your heart,

You know is right,

...means determination


Doing more than is expected,

To make another's life a little more bearable,

Without uttering a single complaint,

...means compassion


Helping a friend in need,

No matter the time or effort,

To the best of your ability,

...means loyalty


Giving more than you have,

And expecting nothing

But nothing in return,

...means selflessness


Holding your head high,

And being the best you know you can be

When life seems to fall apart at your feet,

Facing each difficulty with the confidence

That time will bring you better tomorrow's,

And never giving up,

...means confidence.
