Falling and Getting Up
Daniel, Age 12, Vancouver, BC

                     
When you are hurt and dying,
Donít give up and let death take you.

For when you fall, you stand up again.

When you are teased and ignored,
Donít let your tears spill out.

For when you fall, you stand up again.

When the roadís steep and lonely,
Donít turn back and give up.

For when you fall, you stand up again.

When life is filled with anguish,
Donít just let it be.

For when you fall, you stand up again.

When you are young and weak,
Donít be afraid to take first steps.

For when you fall, you stand up again.

When you run towards the finish,
Donít slow down and give up

For when you fall you stand again.

When your blood spills on the ground,
Donít just stay and cry.

For when you fall, you stand up again.

But when you take your last breath,
Kiss the world good-bye.

For when you fall, you wonít stand up again.
