I Stand - Poem by Atara Gedalowitz

I stand on a past,
A past that's quite filled
Filled with lies
Filled with truth
Filled with people being killed

I stand on a history,
A history built from labor
Labor of strong
Labor of weak
Labor of neighbor for neighbor

I stand on a strength.
A strength that's been tested
Tested by time
Tested by hate
Tested by being bested

I stand with a pride,
A pride that was won
Won for freedom
Won for justice
That I carry on
