I stand for truth
I stand for hope
I stand for those
Whose necks are being pressed
I stand for justice
I stand for love
I stand for equity
I stand for those who are being oppressed
I stand for the girl that has been raped
I stand for she whose voice is being stifled –
I stand for the Kingdom of Adara
I stand for the people of Kajuru
I stand for the black people around the world
I stand for all people of colour
I stand for all who are being segregated
On the grounds of religion and faith

I stand for good governance
For Africa and Africa’s progress
I stand for accountability
In our systems and sectors
I stand for the children who have no parents
Because they were killed in a war
I stand for the woman who lost her husband
Who watched her children die before her
I stand for the man who lost his wife
The day the herdsmen visited his village
I stand for tolerance
I bow my knee as I stand
I lie down as I stand
I stand…
