Stand (S.M.B)

Stand unabashed to face the world
That starved you 
Refuse to starve
That segregated you
Refuse to be separate 
Stand as one unbroken by the world
That judged you
Refuse to live in a box
By standards of others
Live and breathe and know life
Stand as One in the world so that it knows
Your color is its color
Your voice is its voice
Your hearts beat is its heart beat
your life is its life mad or sane
