Pick Up Your Head - Poem by ary bolanos

Play Poem Video

Pick up your head
The teacher is teaching

Pick up your head
The preacher is preaching

Pick up your head
The giver is giving

Pick up your head
Your life is worth living

Pick up your head
The stander is standing

Pick up your head
The demander's demanding

Pick up your head
Her lips are worth kissing

Pick up your head
Or, you'll miss what you're missing

Pick up your head!


Poet's Notes about The Poem

A response to one of my students who always was putting his head on his desk. Or a reminder to myself to keep my head up.
