No fall! No rise!!

No fall! No rise!!

A Poem by Kay Salisu Titilola

If you don't loose, you can never learn to win.

Life is a home for competition,
Everyone wants to be on top all.
They try to get up the tower without a ladder,
And fly without a wing to the top of the world.

Nobody wants to fall,
Everyone wants to rise.
How would a ball bounce up,
without touching the ground.

The harder a ball hit the ground,
The higher it moves towards the sky.
If you strike it with a gentle hand,
It'll only bounce a little high.

No success without failure,
No knowledge without mistake.
You can only acquire knowledge through learning,
And be wise through all its pain.

Trick are like an heavy plank,
Pushing up a tiny wire.
A little slip can let it down,
And return it to where it start.

The greatest eagle fell a thousand times,
Just to learn the way to fly.
Now it's wing is widely spread,
Flying up to tour the Sky.

Mountain rises from lowland,
Peak and sea base are once the same.
Once you fall, just rise again,
Or your life may fade away.
