You’ve got to rise, above trials and tribulations

Beyond criticisms and condemnation,

Beyond self-doubt and shame,



Beyond economic meltdown and terrorism,

Beyond barricades and borders,

Beyond complaints and compromise,



Beyond your fears and struggles,

Beyond the betrayals and broken promises,

Beyond limitations and procrastination,



Beyond neglect and regret,

Beyond your compromise and sins,

Beyond hostility and disdain,



Beyond your environment and its influence,

Beyond the peer pressure and bad habits,

Beyond traditions and customs,



You’ve got to rise,

It is your only chance to freedom.

You’ve got to rise,

It’s your gateway to prosperity.
