STAND-Strength To Achieve New Directions
Emptiness envelops so many people,
young and old.
Could we truly bear to hear
the stories they have told?
Of abuses and pain
humiliation and fear
Of hopelessness and abandonment
and wondering why they’re here.
Because of their color
lifestyle, or status in life
They are made fun of and hurt
and left with undo strife.
Racism, hate crimes, bullying
and judgmental minds
Must begin to look in their heart
and discover what they’ll find
Take a STAND for these souls
give them a sense of HOPE,
for you never really know
if they may be on their last rope.
Suicide kills more than a life
it kills HOPE as well
It makes us realize how life
can be a living hell.
Take a STAND in your school,
on your job or on the street,
knowing your support and grace
might get them on their feet.
Strength To Achieve New Directions
is the hope their longing for
To know that their life is worth it
and see love outpoured.
Where there’s violence, Take a STAND
When there’s injustice, Take a STAND;
Where there’s hopelessness, Take a STAND
Where there’s bullying Take a STAND
Want to Achieve New Direction in your life? Take a STAND and in Strength begin to see your life turn around.
