Get Up

Get Up

I see your tired face
You’re beaten down in place
But laying won’t help you
You know what you must do
Get up

The world has kicked your ass
You feel you’re low on gas
Your body stalls and stays
And on the ground it lays
Get up

You feel you’ve had enough
The days are just too rough
There’s too much to endure
You seek some place secure
Get UP

Your luck has been all bad
You’re miserable and sad
But waiting won’t fix things
Cut anchoring strings
GET UP

Let go of what they did
You’re no longer a kid
Stop throwing a big fit
It’s time you deal with it
GET UP!

Stop crying for yourself
Get working on your health
GET OUT THE DOOR AND RUN
START GETTING SOMETHING DONE
GET UP!!

GET MILES UNDER YOUR FEET
PROVOKE YOUR HEART TO BEAT
GET BLOOD FLOWING IN VEINS
START LIVING WITH PAINS
GET UP!!!

DON’T TELL ME THAT YOU CAN’T
DON’T BITCH AND WHINE AND RANT
‘CAUSE I HAVE BEEN THERE TOO
AND KNOW WHAT YOU MUST DO:
Get up

Turn off your racing brain
Don’t focus on the pain
Just do one little feat
And every day repeat:
Get up

‘Cause only when you’re standing
Are you in charge, commanding
Your body to keep moving
Your current state improving
GET UP!!!!

    I really like this poem. I like the merit and pace. I like the flow, but most of all I like the message. GET UP!

Speak up, fellow Warrior!
