Let’s Get up!

Let’s get up

Or shall miss the train

Fifteen more minutes

Long way to go

Dress up

Pack the bags

With papers of worth 

Bound with strings

Bearing ten years

Of rejection

And failure

On this day

With hundred more

Playing the same game

With few winners

I may be one

To travel few hours

To the east of north

Twelve more minutes

Or shall miss the train

Let’s get up
