I will rise
After every fall.
I will rise
And stand tall.

I will rise
Over the wall.
I will rise
Above them all.

Like the sun,
Which never dies.
Though sets every night,
Every day it does rise.

Like the ocean
Whose tides
Many times they are down
But invariably they rise.

Like the trees
From seeds they arise
And heights great
They rise and rise.

After falling once,
Twice and thrice,
Again and again
I will rise and rise.

I will rise
After every fall.
After every fall
I will rise.

Great poem, Sugar! My way and thoughts exactly. Faith in yourself and positive thinking are the strongest virtues we can have. That kind of thinking will control your body and heart. Good job!
