Broken, Persevere, Rise

Broken
You’re knocked on the anvil,
Blows after blows until you break
Into pieces or crushed into powder,
Until your dreams bleed to death !

Persevere
Pick your pieces and hold them
Together with your sweat,
Lift your head and crawl on earth, But
never give up until you lose your breath

Rise
Muscles creaking to reach,
The greatness hidden beneath!
Your ‘Will’ forged in fire of Belief,
No Pain can melt man of steel!
