Stand Up and Be Counted

by Deja' Rae

"Stand Up! …Be Counted!"
(A Message of Faith, Love, Honor and Strength)

God has bestowed upon you a great gift,
This is a fact, not a fiction or a myth,
You are commissioned to be man,
Open your eyes to GOD's plan,
Stand up! … be counted!

When you look into the mirror who do you see?
Is it a stem from a stick or the root of a tree?
Take care of your body like God takes care of us,
Give all glory to HIM, your faith and your trust,
Stand up! … be counted!

And in return he will give you what you need,
A beautiful ripe fruit and strong seeds,
And when that ripe fruit looks at you,
She will love and appreciate the things that you do,
Stand up! … be counted!

And when those seeds are weaned from the bottle,
They'll see you! as their role model.
When that reflection in the mirror looks back at you,
It will tell you that you've lived a life of truth.
That reflection will tell you that you can,
That reflection will show you are MAN.
Stand up and be counted!
