Pick Yourself Up


Life has knocked you down.
You feel so bad.
It's been a long time.
Since you've felt glad.

You work so hard.
Never does anyone care.
You rise with the sun.
And sleep when you dare.

You can't rest.
You can't get ahead.
You approach each day.
With a sense of dread.

Stop it right now.
You are important too.
Stop kicking yourself.
Your true value is you.

Stand up and
don't let your self fall.
Pick yourself up.
Stand proud and stand tall.

You are important.
You are the best.
You are just as important
As the rest.

Stop downing yourself.
For the bad things aren't true.
Pick yourself up.
See you as I do.

I don't make mistakes.
I don't make junk.
I made you like me.
Perfect, beautiful, lovely
For all to see.
