You call me names,
You ridicule my clothes
You roll your eyes
Yet, still I stand

You cast me out,
You belittle me,
You mock my actions,
Yet, still I stand

If I said, it didn’t hurt,
It would be a lie,

If I said, it didn’t matter,
That too would be a lie

But, whatever you do,
How hard you try
To tear me down and smash my pride
Still, I will stand

Nothing you say,
Nothing you do,
Will ever convince me
To give into you

I am a human,
I have worth
So make note of this one thing,
I will always stand
