I Fall Down

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Tuesday, September 21, 2010 Under: Poetry

I fall down.

Can I get back up?

I struggle to my feet.

I wonder why I fell.


I fall down again.

Ugh, it's hard to get up.

I pull myself up and

standing up straight.


Oops, I trip and fall.

A new way to hit the ground.

Can I still get up?

I somehow manage.


Down I go again.

What is this? 

Can't I stay upright?

Oh well, I'll brush myself off.


Now someone trips me.

Ground and I meet once more.

I was at a good pace.

Oh well, let me start again.


I see someone fall in front of me.

I'm in a hurry - should I stop?

I help them up to their feet.

We both go on our way.


There are times I will fall down.

Sometimes I will jump to my feet,

sometimes I will struggle to just stand.

But at least I get up because staying down

won't get me to the riches in my path.
