Getting up daily

You get an hour. That is all.
A single sixty-minute span.
You have to heal, to learn, to grow,
And make something that you can show.
“Yo, lookey. I created this.
It wasn’t there. It didn’t exist.
I made it happen. Made it this.”
Of course, they do not have to care.
Of course, tomorrow even you
May not be proud of what you see.
But you’ll be prouder of the “me”
You see emerging from the deep.
And that is all the cause you need
To get up daily from your sleep.
