Stand Poem by Olayinka Faderera Olayiwola

Stand

Rating: 5.0
 


Because everybody does it
doesn't makes it right
Today I choose the way, I want to live my life
I know it won't be easy but, I'll still strife
Even though I be the only one
I will still stand alone-
'cos- because everybody does it
doesn't makes it right
To you, my opinion may sound misled,
so provoking, antiquated or even weird
and even though, your scorn tilts my eyes to tears like onion
I will still like the corn, fervently stick to the cob of my opinion-
'cos- because everybody does it
doesn't makes it right
Today, I choose to be on the Lord's side
For there, I am save from evil tide
Though, to the Lord's offer many may say 'No! '
I will stay glued to him for one thing I know-
because everybody does it
doesn't makes it right
