I Stand

Mon, 04/01/2019 - 19:44 -- Selph

I Stand.

The fires burn me

and I stand.

The people scorn me,

and I stand.

Darkness hunts me,

and I stand.


I am here.


I am fire.


I am courage and I am light.

I exist. I live. I am individual.


And here I stand,

because I live for a greater cause.

My soul, my spirit, my body.

I stand for my God.

For my family.

I am made strong to stand.


Even if I must stand alone…
