Up, Not Down

I look up as my world come crashing down I reach up to keep from falling down I feel up as it all goes down I am up when I really should be down I stay up when I am expected to be down I stand up as I am told to stay down I seem up to make sure I do not look down I am truly up For I will not be kept down
