Get Up

Get Up

Get up.

They're counting me out.

Ten...

Nine...

This is a pivotal moment.

Do I stay down?

It'd be so much easier.

Eight...

Do I have the courage?

To get up.

The strength?

To keep on keeping on.

To do what's asked of me.

Seven...

To try to stand tall.

Loud and proud.

To stand up again.

Cause I was knocked down.

I lost again.

I've failed before.

I will again.

I will rise again.

But now I have to just stand up.

Six...

Right now it's the only thing I can do.

One foot.

Five...

I can persist.

Another foot.

Four...

One hand.

Pushing up.

Standing after all this isn't easy.

To fight for what I believe in isn't easy.

Rising slowly.

Three...

My failures lead to my best lessons.

The most growth.

Balancing.

Two...

It all comes down to this.

Steady now.

Perseverance.

One...

I'm standing.

I'm here.

Not going anywhere.

Is that all you got?

Is it?

So, what's next?
