Favorite Quote:
"I'd rather be hated for who I am, than loved for who I am not."
Kurt Cobain


Long days
And
Short nights
I will not STAND for this
Not enough food
For everyone at the table
I will not STAND for this
One room
For seven people
I will not STAND for this
No car
And
Two working parents
I will not STAND for this
Not enough money
To keep her
In college
I will not STAND for this
I will not wait for good things to come
That could take months and months
I will take a chance
Raise my hand
To the world
And
End this

I have a friend across the country who doesn't have as much as we do and I wanted to write about it.
