Rise

rising

A poem about being down and out and having the strength to always rise again.

Get knocked down things not going well

feeling as if you’re spending time in hell

nothing goes right all lows and no highs

and still you have the strength to rise

Feeling hopeless lost and afraid

the best of plans get waylaid

no words to speak only sighs

and still you have the strength to rise

Heartbroken dreams cast aside

looking for a place in which to hide

failing failing so many tries

and still you have the strength to rise

Sun breaks through the clouds now gone

a new path unto your feet is shown

triumphant through adversity only truth now no lies

and all because you had the strength to rise
