Rise Again


The greatest mistake made when falling down... is believing you will never rise again. The unafraid in self-pity refuse to drown, choosing instead to live like men. One doesn't have to be a soldier only to fight for what he believes, never carry on your shoulder a weight no one relieves. No man dreams in vain who celebrates his every scar, never allow a moment of pain define whom you really are. Battle scars remind you that even in retreat, you fought for what is true, now overcome defeat. We all must learn to cope when all seems momentarily lost, never in the future abandoning hope, every battle has its cost. The price one must pay for being tested most... is waiting for the day to celebrate and boast! To die as a coward is not to have lived at all, through Christ man is empowered to finally rise from the fall! For those who say their prayers, and refuse to lose their heart, there is a God who cares, there will be a brand new start. Life has much in store for those who live not to deceive, a man is so much more than those around him dare believe. The spiritual life itself never should he disown, if even by himself never is man alone. If you love your neighbor, as you so dearly love yourself, never forsake God's eternal labor, never leave him on the shelf. Every challenge always meet while bravely staying true, rising to your feet, there is much still left to do. Always strive to live according to God's eternal plan, the young child must forgive the old sins of the man. Students must correct teachers who are cruel, love is not a subject ever taught in school. Never should a child allow a man to forget: no life should be defiled by eternal regret. No grave mistake can forever keep us down, so long we don't forsake a love of great renown. We are not the sum of everything we own, the day is bound to come when the truth will be known. Embrace what is lawful before eternity can commence, knowing the Gospel is our first line of defense. Loving God with all you are is the first command, bright is the Morning Star that arrives as planned. As it was in the beginning, so shall it be in the end, the rebellious always sinning against the pious can't contend. The prophecies of the Bible will never fail, against St. Michael no evil can prevail. As written in prison several millennia ago, the Lord has finally risen with a judgement to bestow. A lion has prevailed and opened seven seals, the future he unveiled making a final appeal. No grave injustice can forever stand, a Christian's moral compass is always in his hand. For those who are in search only of what is true, Catholic is the Church unmeant only for a few. A sacred house of prayer is not a den of thieves, the Gospel always share so the faithful never leaves. Looking far beyond what only eyes can ever see, to a call man must respond with ever pious glee. Heavenly ascension is the meaning of true love, no other contention brings salvation from above. Seeds were only planted so the faithful could understand: forgiveness is only granted to those who live by divine command. Only but a few are ever so inclined: to say only what is true in defense of all mankind. So be grateful for times of hardship, when we are tested most, there is only one God to worship, only one reason to boast. Light is the load borne by what is true, but redemption is a road traveled only by a few. Before answering the call to finally ascend, a man should only fall... so he may rise again!
