Stand For Self

Stand For Self

written by: Nafisa Shabbir

 

When someone’s really cruel
And hurts you to the core
Why do you turn your cheek
As if begging for more??
Bullying is so common
We see it everywhere
Don’t let it thrive and grow
And add lines to your brow.
Be a gentleman
But Fight back if you can
Meekness is no use
It leads to more abuse
So do not bow to the might
But stand up for your right
The world is yours – my dear
So never bow to fear
Don’t let them rant and rave
Just stand up and be brave
If you will cruelly defy
And not just mourn and sigh
Then take my word for it
Your head, you can hold up, high
