Standing Strong

I stand for the weak,
Those society left alone,
I have no fear of the whip,
No insult will hit bone.

I stand for the sick,
Those struck down by chance,
I have no fear of judgement,
Forever I hold my stance.

I stand for the broken,
Those who cannot fight,
I have no fear of pain,
My weakness gives me might.

Defender of the innocent,
Those who don’t deserve,
The cruelty of this world.
For them I proudly serve.
