Rising and Falling

            i
Rising and falling all 
These while,
Do cast out your burden
Or your world keeps breaking,
You know where it pinches
Blow it out like ashes
Or it remains and scratches 
You like some rashes.
            ii
Today you stand on your feet
Tomorrow you fall off your feet
These come and go
Because of your uncertain decisions.
The verbal menace you mention
Are all attributes to your
Horrible reception.
            iii
If you must shine then you must rise,
For in down fall you find doom,
All around,gloom,like in dark room.
Upright upright like a star...
Far above to be a star.
Apply healing curing faith,
All to keep your mind alright,
All these do,your heart will be bright.
             iv
Now stand up and walk
If you please,
But if you choose to remain slacken,
Then you will have your self to blame....
