When people try to get you to do something wrong by saying,
‘Nobody will know, no one’s around’…
Do what’s right and STAND YOUR GROUND.
When someone attempts to take your moral compass,
So that you lose the integrity you’ve found…
Stay the course and STAND YOUR GROUND.
If the weight of this world feels like a rope around your neck,
That’s trying to drag your spirit down…
Plant your feet in your faith and STAND YOUR GROUND.
Even if you’re the only one who will speak for what’s right,
Let your voice be a just and honest sound…
State the truth and STAND YOUR GROUND.
When your mind tries to run away on you,
In an attempt to confuse, conflict, and confound…
Tame your thoughts and STAND YOUR GROUND.
When life seems like it’s all too much,
With the suffering and setbacks that abound,
Get ready for a comeback and STAND YOUR GROUND.
If your demons are nipping at your heals,
As they howl and they hound…
Beat them off with a stick and STAND YOUR GROUND.
If you had a dream that sank in the waters of doubt,
It disappeared as it drowned…
Breathe new life into it and STAND YOUR GROUND.
Though the hand of time is relentless,
Each day it continues with a slap and a pound…
Know that you can take it and STAND YOUR GROUND.
If you’re feeling overwhelmed,
And the sickness of worry begins to mound…
Cure it with calm and STAND YOUR GROUND.
And though people may say you’re not good enough, not strong enough,
not smart enough, not tall enough, not fast enough, not someone who could ever astound,
Keep on keeping on and STAND YOUR GROUND.
For if you do, you’ll be the last one standing,
And the champion you will be crowned…
So don’t give up – STAND YOUR GROUND.
