The Steadfast Kid - Poem by Matthew Holloway

The steadfast kid
I’m not for running
I’m not for fighting either
I’ll turn the other cheek
And remain silent
I’ll listen to those who matter
Forget those who don’t
Take the right thoughts in
Weather any storm
That passes my way
I’ll be steadfast, unmovable
Resilient by day
Comforting at night
I’ll stand firm
I’ll stand at your side
A permanent fixture
To be counted on
I’m not for running
I don’t intend to fight
I’m the steadfast kid
Here to live, life
