To Be a Daniel by Audrey Austin

To Be a Daniel
I sing the song in Sunday School
Dare to be a Daniel
But truth or dare gets in the way
Of being who I am.
It matters that I get along
Popularity is key
I learn to follow and partake
I forget what I believe.
I say I'll do it all my way
I say to none but me
And then when told here's what we'll do
I wander from my path.
Now that I'm older sitting on fence
I'm neither here nor there
Daniel hides - will he be found
When this old soul lays bare?
