Stand up and fight for what is right

121 candles-1645551_1920Stand up and fight for what is right,

With words  imperfect, but a heart that’s alright.

Be the flame that sheds light – alive and strong,

When society wants a display of money, or when you see something wrong.

Stand up and be strong, do not be afraid,

Sometimes, we have to dig up the soil so a fresh foundation can be laid.

Be the change that you want everyone else to be.

Sometimes, we have to fight the tide to swim in the sea.

Every one of us has values that are different, and sometimes we give in and go with the flow. But there are those who don’t give in and chose to stand and fight for their personal values – whatever they may be.

This poem is about these families. Who get the benefits of today, while holding onto values and traditions that have been with them for generations.
