To Rise Above

To rise above anger, hate and despair,
to sail unchained in the rarified air,
to stand your ground when no one cares,
to bravely go where no one dares,

to find your principles and hold them fast,
to remain self-true when you’re the last,
to say “enough” when you’ve had your fill,
to rise above is a matter of will.

Down here is unreason, pain and bad love,
they cannot bind when you rise above.
There is a difference between truth and lies,
to see what it is just open your eyes.

Many are mired in financial gain,
without great wealth their world is a pain.
Things besides cash can we have a wealth of,
and all can bring joy when we rise above.

To find your principles and hold them fast,
to remain self-true when you’re the last,
to say “enough” when you’ve had your fill,
to rise above is a matter of Will.
