This is a poem that inspires us to pick ourselves up after a fall

Rise Up!!!!

"Rise Up" sayeth a voice unto me
That voice that echoes even from within
But tell me how and how can I possibly rise up
The hardwork of my drowsiness
Hath left me at the mercy of my slumber
My motivation of the past hath left me in self deprivation
And now you expect me to rise up once more

"But you can rise up again!!!!"
Oh! Here comes the echo once more
Leave me alone and to my own vices
For how mayest I rise up whilst I haveth not the devices
Like a lame man cries unto the scorn of society
How can I walk when I have no feet?
Therefore I sayeth unto you, how can I rise up

"Why sayeth thou that?, for you have feet and you can walk"
Oh no! You understand me not
Do not mistake the literary for the emotive
I may have feet but they are not walking
"Because you refuse them the liberty of their walk"
Get yea behind me for you are nothing but talk
But the voice sayeth once more and again and again, "Rise Up!"

"Rise Up! Rise Up!! Rise Up!!! Oh Rise Up!!!!"
It's pondering perseverance prevailed on and on
It left me defeated, my adamance completely beaten
My feet began to move, breaking the shackles that were once my salvage
"See!!!, I told you you could do it", Oh be quiet , I replied
But by my actions, I had taken its heed
Even as I began to rise up
