What’s a life when you stand for nothing? Nothing. You have to stand for something. If you stand for nothing, then anything will send you over the edge. You’re already on the ground, all that happens is everything washes over you, and you begin to sink in the dark swirling mess. But if you stand for something, you have to get brought to your knees before you fall. It doesn’t sound like fun, and it isn’t, because each time you fall to your knees, hope seems to be lost. Many times people will stand up for their dreams, but dreams are shot down, and then what they stood for is no longer there. It doesn’t mean everything is lost. In fact you are far from everything being lost. You got to get up, and find something else. I stood for nothing for three years. I almost didn’t make it through. I lost every value I had, but death shook me out of it. I realized that everything I had learned in church was real. That it is a big deal. And I accepted him into my heart. I stand for him now. And he won’t let me down.
