Never Give up the Fight…

perception

As a young girl growing up, I never liked to listen to the legendary Bob Marley. But as I grew older and matured, I realized that his music dealt with a lot of issues. Issues that plague our society every day. I have often been conscious of my perception of things. I have learnt that things are not always what they appear to be. Often, we must question whether our perception is actually the reality. At times they are not. And just imagine how much heartache and pain we could avoid if we were to look beyond what seems apparent.  Let us be mindful that things are not always what they appear to be. Let’s learn to never give up the fight of enduring to the end to achieve our goals, dreams, passion, and desires.

As we peruse Bob Marley’s lyrics to ‘Never Give up the Fight’, do contemplate…have our perception ever been wrong?

Get up, stand up, stand up for your right
Get up, stand up, stand up for your right
Get up, stand up, stand up for your right
Get up, stand up, don’t give up the fight

Preacher man don’t tell me heaven is under the earth
I know you don’t know what life is really worth
Is not all that glitters in gold and
Half the story has never been told
So now you see the light, aay
Stand up for your right. Come on

Get up, stand up, stand up for your right
Get up, stand up, don’t give up the fight
(Repeat)

Most people think great God will come from the sky
Take away ev’rything, and make ev’rybody feel high
But if you know what life is worth
You would look for yours on earth
And now you see the light
You stand up for your right, yeah!

Get up, stand up, stand up for your right
Get up, stand up, don’t give up the fight
Get up, stand up. Life is your right
So we can’t give up the fight
Stand up for your right, Lord, Lord
Get up, stand up. Keep on struggling on
Don’t give up the fight

We’re sick and tired of your ism and skism game
Die and go to heaven in Jesus’ name, Lord
We know when we understand
Almighty God is a living man
You can fool some people sometimes
But you can’t fool all the people all the time
So now we see the light
We gonna stand up for our right

So you’d better get up, stand up, stand up for your right
Get up, stand up, don’t give up the fight
Get up, stand up, stand up for your right
Get up, stand up, don’t give up the fight
