I Rise Even Taller

by Wordsworth Gwary
(Nigeria)



When we fall & hard we fall
Disgruntled memories invade the feeble mind
Joy fades away & sorrow lingers on
The feeble minded bewitched by the alluring features of life
Eyes deceived by love's camouflage...
Beauty & enchantment lies in what's hidden..
For we are too blind to see what's real
We are blinded by our lust for what's fictional
The beauty of life lies in its complexities
Even more beautiful if you overcome its complexities...
I fear not to fall hard & get bruised
For I rise even taller after every fall

I've learnt never to live in regrets
For they only set u back
I only look back on them to avoid repeating the same mistakes twice..
No one is perfect
I'm a perfectly imperfect soul
That's what makes me human..
Striving to reach perfection keeps us going
I learn from my perfect imperfections..
We are only natural by our imperfections.
It only graces our minds back to reality
When we fall and hard we fall sometimes
Far from the life of fiction we led while we stood tall.
Life is only telling us we are drifting from reality
I fear not to fall, for I stand taller after rising from every fall.

We blossom in our pains
Tears and being disturbed interject one another
They remind us we are still human
We dwindle in sorrow
We glow in joy
Human nature is what makes life complex
Life is the mirror that reflects the trials and tribulations of man
Pain can be cruel to the eye
But it reawakens the soul
I shall fear not the pains as I fall
I shall fear not to fall
I shall rise & stand tall after every fall

Beneath the tears of a woman lie deep sorrow
Behind the masked face of a disturbed man
Lies hidden tears & scars

We cannot outlive our designed years nor short-live them
We can remain fallen when we fall hard
We should fear not to trip
We should learn to stand taller after every fall
We should rise faster than when falling
For we learn more about life
We learn more about the path we walk on after every fall
I fall to rise taller after every fall
I rise & stand even taller after every fall
