Where I Stand
I stand for those trying to make an honest living.
I stand for those unable to find a job.
I stand for capitalism…the ability to earn a living and reap the benefits of your own hard work.
I stand for those who work hard and still cannot make ends meet…
I’ve been there.
I stand for those who don’t think they’re entitled
Just because they breathe.
I stand for those…so many…who need help
And can’t find it.
I stand for all who are looked down upon and judged
Just because they are poor.
I stand for my beliefs in Jesus Christ.
I stand for the right to proclaim those beliefs.
I stand for loving those who share those beliefs…
and for still loving, and respecting others who do not.
I stand for loving all those who have plenty…
and all those who lack much.
I stand for you and for me on this journey…side by side.
I stand when I’d much rather lie down crumpled in the corner.
I will stand until they lay me in the ground.
