Get UP and TRY #MFRWAuthor

There’s another video for this song, which has a phenomenal, and a bit disturbing, dance sequence. I think having the words to follow helps my appreciation. Plus, as I said, it really is disturbing.

Try is a love song but it’s also a call to arms for any of us who are holding back, not giving our all, for whatever reason. Especially when the doing truly matters to us.


Where there is desire, there is gonna be a flame
Where there is a flame, someone’s bound to get burned
But just because it burns, doesn’t mean you’re gonna die
You gotta get up and try, and try, and try
Gotta get up and try, and try, and try
You gotta get up and try, and try, and try


We have to try even if the fear of failure is greater than ever before. We can so easily (or not so easily at times) write about people overcoming their doubts and fears. Why is it so difficult for us to take that same step?

Speaking of writing, yes I’m writing. Sometimes a few sentences drag themselves onto the page…sometimes pages throw themselves into the story. Gotta get up and try.

Don’t forget to tell everyone what they mean to you. We never know when they’ll be gone.
