Rise, a poem by Anne G at Spillwords.com



Written by: Anne G



Rise to be

The cream of the crop

Rise like a rocket

Straight to the top

Take care to be steady

As slowly you rise

Or know your descent

Will be fast and you’ll crash

The same that applauded

Your rise to the top

Will heckle and jeer

As you fall on your back

So rise, rise, rise, rise

Be humble and wise

As you make your ascent

Of your mountain of choice

Why write?
I write because I am:
Driven to distraction by the inequities of the society in which we live.
Motivated by cruelty, abuse, ignorance and indifference.
My intention: To poke, prod and provoke!
"Moderation is a fatal thing. Nothing succeeds like excess." - Oscar Wilde
