I Stand To Fight - Poem by Brandon Smith

What happened to me?
Why am I this way?
What should I do now?
Everything I once loved
Seems meaningless to me now
Everything I've ever wanted
Is useless to me now
Why should I fight?
Why should I care?
Sitting at the bottom
With nothing to lose
I will stand up
And I will stand strong
Military training taught me to fight
For the things I deserve
And for that of which is right
So as I fight through my life
Dreaming of a goal
I will always stand to fight
For what's right
With no intention of losing.
