STAND #poem

STAND for what you care for
Don’t fall into the snare that others set to trap you, or glue you in, or box you in.

You gotta Jack Dempsey, and roll on through. You gotta Starfox barrel it— Donkey Kong fuck with it.

You can take a beating, Hajime No Ippo it. Keep boxing and fighting, you can take a hit.

You’re bruised, bloody yet smiling. Keep Guiling it forward with the artistic Sonic Booms. Keep swelling like your own Mushroom Cloud.

Say it loud, fierce and bold.

You’re you. Your fate — you choose.
