Choose to Sit/Stand

Updated on September 12, 2016

I have served my country for over 16years and for you, I continue to fight

So you can choose to sit, kneel or stand

Or do whatever in your heart feels right?

I have served my country for over 16years but still some only see the color of my skin

So you can choose to sit, kneel or stand

As long as you are not going against God, to me that ain’t no sin.

I have served my country for over 16years and been to so many different places

So you can choose to sit, kneel or stand

You’re fighting for me and my people, against some that may be borderline racist.

I have served my country for 16years, some been bad but more has been good

So you can choose to sit, kneel or stand

Cause I know of the struggle where the cameras don’t go, in the back of the hood.

I have served my country for 16years, got the red white and blue on my chest

So you can choose to sit, kneel or stand

I understand you’re shining light on the ones that are oppressed.

I have served my country for over 16years, other countries can not compare

So you can choose to sit, kneel or stand

The ones that disagree, don’t you dare!

I have served my country for over 16years, I don’t know how much longer

So you can choose to sit, kneel or stand

And what don’t kill us will make us stronger.

I have served my country for over 16years, through blood sweat and tears

So you can choose to sit, kneel or stand

I feel your pain so if others cannot see, hopefully they can hear.

I have served my country for over 16years even though our families were slaves

So you can choose to sit, kneel or stand

Because this is America, land of the free and home of the brave!
