Come, Rise Up - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

No one runs from the Sun thinking it can be done.
No one runs from the Sun thinking it can be done.
No one runs from the Sun thinking it can be done.
No one runs from the Sun thinking it can be done.

Come...
(And) Rise up!
Sunrise to open up eyes,
On the horizon to clear up skies.

Come...
And rise up!
To ease the preaching on the streets that heat...
Philosophies to cease the evils.

Come...
(And) Rise up!
Sunrise to open up eyes,
On the horizon to clear up skies.

Remove all shadows from faith and hope.
And silence folks with soaked mopes stroking!

No one runs from the Sun thinking it can be done.
No one runs from the Sun thinking it can be done.
No one runs from the Sun thinking it can be done.
No one runs from the Sun thinking it can be done.

Come...
(And) Rise up!
Sunrise to open up eyes,
On the horizon to clear up skies...
To ease the preaching on the streets that heat,
Philosophies...
To cease all evils.
