Stand Up

a poem by John Chika Onyeme, Nigeria

Do not give your tears wings
Give the wings to your strength
And you'll fly again.

The ground was not designed
For your butts.
It was designed for your feet
So stand up!

Stars have no place on the ground
Space is their abode
And always will be.
The sky your eyes behold from here
Is the beginning of your acumen
You don't belong here.
Stand up!

When life challenges you
It is because you're the champ
(No one challenges a loser)
And if only you'll try, just one more time
You'll win.
So get up!
