It is not words

It's not only thoughts

Less talking required

Internal rooting necessary

Drive your legs down

Let your feet firmly plant

Arise from the ashes

Shake off the blood and sweat

Lift up your eyes

Tighten your lips

Step, step, step

Climb, climb, climb

Pull, pull, pull

Use all your energy in action

Waste none with words


This poem is about: 
My family
My community
My country
Our world



"Life isn't for the faint of heart. For those who dare take it on, everything awaits."
