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
