Arise And Build


How long will tears flow from my eye
Like the flow oh the Nile
Should i stop aiming high
When having the chance to go a mile
Not until i die
I want to see that pleasant smile
Pain painted me with a dye
Laying useless like bile

No man no cry
Got to rise up and go
Don`t ask me why
Because you won`t know
As day goes by
Your experience grow
Look into the sky
And see the mist flow

Hope lies there
Opportunity is always near
Don`t stand bare
Forget you fear
And rise up in your time
Rely not on wine
Be a builder of all time.

    It's a nice expression. if you are to achieve a goal - you have to forget all emotions & have to stride until the goal is fulfilled. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
