#Getup #now ~First step to reaching the peak of 2018. .we’ll thrive.

Poem Title: Get Up
Get up,
From that road
Where the night stays awake snoring
And the day steals the virtues of the night,
As dreams turn to nightmares under sunlight

Get up
From the shadows of negative people
Where you relax disturbingly,
Under the cool shade of a heated doubt,
Leaving goals reduced to regrets

Get up
From your knees bent to defeat
Where anxiety calls home;
As your legs appear borrowed to fear,
Making aspirations crawl to reality

Get up
From the seat of deceit
Where laxity is acceptable
And excuses are glorified,
Ensuring an unsure future

Get up
From the bed of roses
Where prickles puncture passion;
Deflating goals,
With thorns masked in an inflated desire

Get up,
From the low places
Where mediocrity is padded by contentment;
Framed up in ‘a case closed’ syndrome,
As ruefulnes becomes a flatmate in your comfort zone.

Get up!
Move up!!
Stay up!!!

Hey there would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using?
I’m looking to start my own blog in the near future but
I’m having a tough time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs
and I’m looking for something completely unique.
P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

Great blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring writers?

I’m hoping to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
Would you suggest starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m completely confused ..
Any tips? Bless you!

Hello! Do you know if they make any plugins to assist with SEO?

I’m trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I’m not seeing very good gains.
If you know of any please share. Appreciate it!

I really love your site.. Great colors & theme.

Did you develop this site yourself? Please reply back as I’m looking to create my own site
and would like to learn where you got this from or just what the theme is named.
