  • Take A Stand

    The brave take a stand
    For the morals they believe
    The wise understand
    We all are being deceived

    Things are out of hand
    I can't believe what I see
    Police killed a man
    They shot him, live on tv

    It's the land of the free
    And we're the home of the brave
    Cops are found not guilty
    When they say they were afraid

    This isn't nothing new
    Kill the men and lock the youth
    Cops working with the news
    Why we never get the truth

    Everyday I'm face with
    How to deal with a racist
    God's love I'm embraced with
    So it's back to the basics
    STAND FOR SOMETHING

    Amen.

    It's the land of the free
    And we're the home of the brave
    Cops are found not guilty
    When they say they were afraid


    Just the truth. Period.

      Let me begin by saying I love this poem. It made me think.

      I am drawn to this entire verse with varied emotions and thoughts.

      What is the truth, is it your truth or my truth? Is truth individualized? Is everyone’s truth true? Can absolute truth be defined?

      I was drawn to the first verse especially:

      “The brave take a stand
      for the morals they believe.
      The wise understand,
      we ALL are being deceived.”

      To whom do we extend this hand of individual morals for which a stand is allowed? Whose morals do we accept? If said morals happen to differ from ours does that make the believer less wise?

      Is ignorance defined by disagreement?

      I try to understand the struggle and the fear. I believe there is a truth that is real on both sides of this divide we call racism.

        I also love the first stanza and believe what 2 Corinthians 11:14-15


        The brave take a stand
        For the morals they believe
        The wise understand
        We all are being deceived


        14 And no wonder, for Satan himself keeps disguising himself as an angel of light.+15 It is therefore nothing extraordinary if his ministers also keep disguising themselves as ministers of righteousness. But their end will be according to their works.

          Some people stand up for the helpless, some for gays so don't get made when someone stands up for something they believe in whether you agree or not
