Get Up and Get Going - Live Your Life

Updated on December 24, 2016
Quote by Bel Claveria Carig Matinez
Quote by Bel Claveria Carig Matinez | Source

Life can be a breeze, every day filled with the sun shining brightly. Life can also be tough and at times, and you may feel like giving up. These are the times when you have to feel brave and courageous.

Life is to live, get up and get going. Remember trying times are like dark clouds, they will pass.

They cannot stay because the wind will surely blow them away and you can see the bright sunshine filling your life with great joy and happiness.

This is a poem expressing all these thoughts -


When you are down,

The walls can come crashing down,

Burying you deep beneath rubble,

Engulfing you in darkness,

You search for a ray of light,

Seeking the way out.


There will be times in life,

When goings get bleak,

And the bleak becomes bleaker,

The strong become weak,

And the weak become weaker,

Always remember my friend,

These are trying times,

Never give up,

Always remember,

All is not lost,

Take heart my friend.


Think of a merry song,

Whistle it out till the end,

Put on some music,

Do a funny dance,

Call up your friend,

Whine all you want,

Drink up some wine,

Pick out your favourite book,

If writing is your thing,

Go ahead and write too.

All is not lost,

Remember my friend,

Whatever you do,

Fight it out till the end.


Do not go down,

Without putting up a fight.

Keep yourself going,

Everything will become all right.

Get up my friend,

Get going and again,

Live your life.
