What Do I Stand For?


What do I stand for?

I dont know anymore.

I used to stand for family.

but It fell before me.

then I stood for hope.

Yeah, that was a joke.

Next came my parents happiness.

That was my weakness.

After that came friends,

they changed like the trends.

It went back to my family after that.

That was a trap.

So I then stood against the doings of wrong.

I'm glad I was that strong.

Once i heal from those sores,

I'll stand for something once more.

Possibly for me, myself, and I.

All the way until the day I die.

But if I should fail,

I'll look to the sky and wail,

What will I stand for?

And the wind will whisper, "I don't know"
