Standing Firm

What makes us stand tall
When we’d rather just fall
Keeping a smile for show
Hoping others won’t know.

One foot in front of the next
Treating everyone with respect
When we want to just scream
Things not as it might seem.

Put on a happy face today
All the right things to say
Hide the pain for a while
Just leave a little style.

Time all wounds will heal
Look ahead, keep it real
Open heart, reaching arm
Stay positive, standing firm.
