Just Because the Ground Is Wet

Get up and shake yourself free of the pain.
Just because the ground is wet doesn’t mean that there’s still rain.
The storm is over now and the winds will subside,
Just remember there is no reason to hide.

Get up, because it won’t help to sit and complain,
Just because you don’t win doesn’t mean there’s nothing to gain.
Just take life slow and easy, and do the best you can,
Remember, before you run or walk, you’ve got to learn to stand.

Get up and help yourself to remain sane,
Just because you have bruises doesn’t mean that there’s still pain.
The worst is over, so brush yourself off,
Realize these tests only prove you can withstand a lot.

Get up and be ready for the second half of the game,
Just because the ground is wet doesn’t mean that there’s still rain.
The drops have dried and the sky has cleared,
You have to control the wheel if you want to learn to steer.
