"STAND UP!"

"STAND UP!"

A Poem by damien anthony

Everything in you reaches out for hope

As you run away for the unexpected

You’re on your own you have to find your way

Nothing will be like it is today

You can’t fade into obscurity

As life forces you out into the spotlight

So now it’s your chance to prove to us all

You have what it takes to be a man

 

Don’t think of looking back now

What you saw then won’t be there now

 

These are times when we need to rise

Feelings of fear are running high

The whole world seems out to get you

So just stand up, stand up, stand up

 

I once felt like I could never cope

All things coming at me from all directions

Forcing me to make choices I’d run from

No one gave me any other way

I took a chance and I pushed ahead

Leaving behind every comfort in my mind

Standing up to all the fears that hold me

And now I know that I can make it

 

Won’t think of looking back now

What I had then won’t be there now

 

There are times when we feel alone

Empty feelings creating voids

The whole world seems so unwelcoming

So I stand up, stand up, stand up

 

You can’t hide from it

It will come for you

You can’t suppress it

It will overwhelm you

 

These are times when we need to rise

Feelings of fear are running high

The whole world seems out to get you

So just stand up, stand up, stand up

There are times when we feel alone

Empty feelings creating voids

The whole world seems so unwelcoming

So I stand up, stand up, stand up
