Stand Up - Poem by Aimee Niree Dowell

This poem was written by me, Aimee Niree Dowell, I am a freshman right now in highschool and none of my poems are in books.

You’re so stubborn it’s beyond my beliefs. I cannot stand you and your modesty.
Stand up. Shake it off. Be arrogant; be sure of your self.
I could stand you allot more then.
To take the credit for what you did and to brag yourself up
is so much easier to stand for. And its so hard for me to stand by while you let them take all the credit for what you did on your own-while they sat back talked and watched you do all the work for them.
Stand up. Raise your voice. Be unique. But in a loud voice all your own.
I know actions speak louder than words,
but it’s better to be known as the girl who spoke her mind than, ‘That one chic in my gym class' because too much can be added to that, and no one wants to take credit for most of it, trust me.
Your actions wouldn't bother me so much if they were helpful for others.
Raise your hand. Open your head. Raise your voice, Let it be heard.
Your more than quiet, you’re smart so let it be known.
When your being pushed around, and you fall to the ground.
Stand up. Raise your voice. Let it be heard. Push back.
The record won't stop skipping, so deal with it.
there are some things that you just can’t change.
But never think that it’s not worth saying.
You have one life, so use it, say what you want. do what you will.
Make a difference. For everyone, not just yourself.
Stand up. Raise your voice. Let it be heard. Let it be known.
