 Reflections of My Heart





††† Ya Gotta Stand For Something ღ KKD ღ





Ya Gotta
Stand For Something

As an American Woman
I stand tall and proud
Protected by He
who watches from the clouds

What more is there in life
but God Family/Friends and County
If this you choose to forsake
I promise you no bounty

In this great land
we still have our choice
and until I go home
I will use my voice

Oh criticism I have been given
on the things I speak about
but speak I always will
and that you should not doubt

I have my precious Savior
who walks with me every day
Within in my life He lives
and for yours I daily pray

It leaves my heart bleeding
as an open gaping sore
When others find offensive
my verbal knocking upon His door

You can do your best
to banish Him from all public display
Know there is nothing you can do
when it is to Him I choose to pray

All the many offenses
will not silence what I have to say
No anger on this will you get
for on bended knee I daily pray

For my family and friends
how I love them so.
There is nothing I would not do
and this I pray they always know

They are always held
deep within my heart
In the deepest dark of night
and with each days start.

My Dad always taught me
by the way he chose to live
To stand up for what I believe
and be true in what I give.

God and County they try to part
which strikes a mighty blow.
For this Country's unity
we have many miles to go

For God Family/Friends and Country
I will always take a stand
It is the blending of each
that make this land so grand.

So criticize me as you see fit
but my silence will not be your resolve
I may be but one small voice
but it is one that will evolve..

So the challenge of this write
I lay out to each of you
With but a single question
What Would Jesus Do?
