Stand

When you’ve done all and have nothing left to do.

When you’ve given your best and have nothing left to give.

When you’ve crossed all the T’s and dotted all your I’s

Stand.

 

When you’ve waited all day and you’ve prayed all night.

When your loss overwhelms you and your boss waylays you

When your spouse misunderstands and your friends disappoint

Stand.

 

Your efforts go unnoticed. Your overtures unrecognized.

The sun is not shining. The rent is not paid.

The good news is: You’re still here!

And you’re still Standing.

 

A living dog is better than a dead lion.

Stand.
