Get Up Now

by Countess of Monte Cristo   Aug 21, 2008


They say your life is crumbled.
They say you lost that much weight.
They say you look older now.
And that you're full of hate.

They say you're an angry person.
Where has your patience gone?
Your optimism withered away.
To cynicism you are drawn.

But i am your friend.
So why don't you open your heart?
Don't fear, i'm here.
Or did anger drive us apart?

Who are you now?
You used to be the straight A star.
Now, i barely recognize you.
I don't know who you are.

Has life pulled you down?
Through its incessant tries.
The wise go through what you went through.
But in the end, They rise.

Give me your hand.
Look at my eyes.
I am me. Do you remember?
I know you do, enough with the lies.

Get up now.
Enough is enough.
Nobody said life will be easy.
Its paths are always rough.

But, In the end, fortitude is what we gain.
Through life's endless pains.
Just like the grass grows harder.
Under the brutal, heavy rains

I need you back.
We need you back.
All of us are waiting for you.
To get back on track.

So, get up now.
Enough of the tears.
Troubles happen always.
But, who cares?

Smile and stand straight.
Come back and command.
No matter who attacks you.
Together we shall stand.

The rocks get hit by the waves.
Yet, they remain rocks.
It is hope that makes us stand on our feet.
Despite life's everlasting shocks.

I tell you, in the end, fortitude is what we gain.
Through life's endless pains.
Just like the grass always grows harder.
Under the brutal, heavy rains.
