When you tell people

who you are

sometimes you’ll be


Are you really who you say

some want to see

if you’ll fail

like them

we don’t have to do that

to one another

All we have to do

is lift each other up


as we lift

one another

we both RISE

One thought on “RISE

  1. This is a basic human flaw to pull each other down or wish to see them fail also. Such a pity more don’t understand the real way, the most effective way that is essentially so easy. And like you said we can both rise! 😀

    I like this poem very much Kai! 🙂 I’m wondering if it would be okay to publish this in (The Writing Garden) a literary magazine I created recently? I’m sure the readers would identify with what you are saying here. I’m about to publish the second issue in a few days and I’m now putting together issue three. It’s a free magazine to help promote writers and spoken word artists from wherever I find them. It’s predominantly poetry but also includes short stories and essays.

    I found you while looking up quotes on ‘seeds’ and discovered your quote on Goodreads. Would it be okay to publish your quote in the same issue too?

    Here’s a link to the first issue of the magazine so you can check it out. https://thewritinggarden.wordpress.com/2015/01/08/the-writing-garden-issue-one/ I also give social media links, so I can link to your blog/facebook/twitter/amazon pages under your work if you’d like me to?

    Thanks for your inspirational poem, I’ll look forward to hearing from you. But of course if you’d rather not, then don’t hesitate to say no, I really won’t mind.
    Suzy 🙂
