Getting Back Up

Rating: 4.3
Life is a bright, long star boulevard,
Where you get good, when you work hard.

But Life is not a fantasy,
or just a love that's shared between thee'
It's a battlefield of broken goals,
A purple sky with empty souls.
The city streets with littered trash,
the wild fire left with ash.

Falling, hurting,
crying, blurting,
fearing, slipping,
failing, tripping.
Lies from fakers,
burning heart breakers.
Those knocking you down,
smiling when you frown.

But others tell you keep on going,
you try so hard though your steps are slowing.
You can't see the future or get a head start,
So getting back up is the hardest part.

Hey LP, I'm a student in the Uk studying like any other school boy. I have a passion for making music in my spare time but i lack the gift to write lyrics. Then i stumbled upon this poem at the end of december 2009 and felt these words were extremely motivational. I managed to include about 30% of these wordings into the lyrics of my song which i've just finished making in late march 2010. I felt it was only fair to tell you.......if you'd like to hear the song i made please contact me on Mayo94coolkid@yahoo.com and i'll reply with an attachment as soon as possible. Stay blessed!

Hi LP, I had a look at a couple of your poems and I like what I see. This one kinda stuck with me because of the words you used in it, they created some nice imagery in my mind. I'll be back to check out more later.

Yeah, we all feel different taking our journeys. No one can help us if we don't help ourselves first. <3
