Pick yourself up
Grab yourself by the collar
And pull
With all you can
With all you are
With all you can be
Stand up
You are here by the love
Of those who came before you
And for the future
Of those who come after you
No time for tears
But shed a few if you must
No time for regrets
But take one last look behind you
No time for fears
But know your weaknesses
For the harvest is here
You just need to ask for it
Reach for it
Cry out for it
Embrace the light
That rains down around you
But you’re too blind to see
Blinded by your own arrogance
Your dependence on yourself
Your darkness
So stand up
And you will not fall again
Never like this
Because He said so

Poetry, Writing

Stand Up
