Stand up
Take a stand
Take a stand for who?
A stand for me?
A stand for you?
A stand for maybe even us?
Who is me?
Who is you?
Who is us?
We are who we choose to be.
What we portray ourselves to be.
How people perceive us.
Sometimes it's rough
to fit in
in this world of judgment.
This world of cruel.
So take a stand.
A stand for them.
Those.
Those who carry on.
Carry on through the rough
and also the cruel.
They take this stand.

sounds very angry, but passionate
this is the feeling i got from this poem
we live in a world that is cruel, but it's also in what you make of it
keep writing and challenge yourself to be greater
im a power poetry mentor
