Up - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Wake up.
Look up.
Get up.
Be up.
Stay up.
Stand up.
Shut up.
And refuse to be fffuh...
Upped in a confusion.
Or give up trying to be you.
Diffuse those mistakes you made.
Under any circumstance,
That attempts to keep you down!
With frowns to share and show.
Only have 'that' which pleases your appetite.
Hunger for it...
Until it is satisfied!
Raise and lift yourself up!
Be that one in the crowd who does.
There ain't nothing to eyeball on the sidewalk,
But cracks.
And you don't have to be about that!
Be 'up'!
Or get out of the way.
