I’m standing here.
You won’t take me down.
All I want is a chance.

Don’t stand out
Be still and smile

The man just cut you with his words
You can’t understand his slander
But you know an insult and a lie when you hear one

Just smile
Don’t stand out
Don’t make a fuss
Your good pride veils intended humiliation.

Don’t touch me.
Don’t pull me.
Don’t drag me down.
I’m standing here

They pull and push
and tug and drag you.
Get away.
