Rise for the heart that was torn
Rise for the war that you fought
Rise for those that let you down
Rise ‘cos you didn’t drown, Rise!
Rise because it is you who bled
Rise because of the tears you ahead
Rise ‘cos you’re a beacon of hope
Rise ‘cos you’re the light that glows, Rise!
Rise ‘cos you loved them so
Rise ‘cos they didn’t know
Rise ‘cos you didn’t lose
Rise ‘cos you weren’t a snooze, Rise!
Rise for the integrity you learnt
Rise ‘cos life left you burnt
Rise for the roads that were rough
Rise ‘cos you proved you were tough, Rise!
Rise ‘cos of the stories you tell
Rise ‘cos you spell
Rise ‘cos you’re the icon of strength
Rise ‘cos you refused to bend, Rise!
Rise for the road ahead
Rise ‘cos you’re alive, not dead
Rise for the goals that are bigger
Rise for the desire to be better, Rise!
Rise ‘cos your role is vital
Rise ‘cos you’re teaching survival
Rise for the path you took
Rise for your new book, Rise!
Rise ‘cos you worked so hard
Rise ‘cos you hold the trump card
Rise as you continue to thrive
Rise ‘cos you do more than survive, Rise!
Rise for the talent that you have
Rise for the ship that you drive
Rise for the doors you now open
Rise for the path that you’ve chosen, Rise!
Rise, for daring to dream
Rise for the vision you’ve weaved
Rise for daring to try
For reaching new heights, Rise
Rise heroes rise!
