"Cowboy Up" - Poem by Gary G Willmore
I think about this term, and what it's all about?
Well it's reaching deep inside yourself when the wife has turned you out.
It's getting' bucked off every bull that you've ever rode or seen;
Going hungry, and telling yourself "I'm not starving', I'm just lean"
It's watching as your friends go to the county fair;
and staying behind, cuz the fence and barn is in need of repair.
It knows what's wrong, and doing what's right;
though it means, you're going home alone tonight.
It's what makes a cowboy tell it straight;
it's being in pain, and calling your gate.
It's having nothing, yet having it all;
it's brushing off the dust and knowing how to fall
It's a spirit tried and true;
like a guardian angel, it'll see you through.
So when you're down and things look rough;
look deep within yourself, and.
