Destiny and honor all making the mark
I stand as a man with no conviction
My movement needs no permission
I stand as an American in knowing my rights
I stand as a man being direct
I am that man being effective
Let no one to tone my voice down
I want Justice to be all around
My voice ranks high and no volume below
I walk, but my mission will not be slow
I will not bow to any man who sees a lower esteem
Being a man my character speaks, and I rise to the occasion
I can’t stand along, but follow me and let it be known
I am no longer unknown
I am the man to the plate
Success is being complete as my slate

My reasons are unknown
But my outburst has shown
My inner voice yells Civil Rights
The emotion will be a good fight
I have been told I must be silent
My demeanor says speak out
It’s about rights
This is no time to sit back and be polite
A light has set my paths of my footsteps
I see a long walkway, which reads “Leadership”
As I walk further another sign says, “Courage”
Then continued walking and discovering “Determination”
But the purpose in me speaking out, and knowing not to take the wrong direction
I can’t detour with a roadblock
My inspiration will not stop
Let my voice ring even if it means to the mountain top
Yes this is my platform as it relates
My journey is whatever date
If you believe in your heart, you know it is not too late
But today, stand with me and let us all appreciate
A man who stands is a man who doesn’t crumble at the end.

Though its very long, it conveys a very strong message; very rare breed of people to find...the ones who stand for the right
