When A Man Should Take a Stand

by poetsteve15

Sam, my Son
When A Man Should Take a Stand
- + -
I know as a man there comes a time
when I stopped being a boy and had to take a stand
and become a real man. Seriously I needed to be
strong enough to know when take my stand.
To speak out in a loud clear voice and
refuse let the other man
hurt my mother or anyone else.
Though-out your lifetime some people will
try to discredit you, disrespect you and treat you
poorly for no apparent reason at all.
Don't consume yourself with trying to change them
or win their approval.
And gosh sake, do not let take up
any space in your heart for hatred towards them,
they are not worth you soul to worry about.
You don't have any control over
what others think about you anyway.
Let other people love you for who you are
don't you worry about what others mighty 
try make you to be.
You only worry about want you want to become,
not the others.
Because you see my Son, if live by my words,
not my deeds, they can't harm you
either way we are family,
we stick together.
