You've got to get up, and try, and try...


written and edited by: B. S. Wiratama

We had a performance in the Kids Fashion Show and Painting Competition at Sekolah HighScope Indonesia-Bali last week, July 21, 2013.

We played many songs, and one of them is Try, a song from Pink. Me and my band played this song on the stage and had many fun with it. The lyrics are full of philosophy that could bring courage to us, of course it's in my opinion and it's still debatable if we going to use it as a generalization conclusion. But for me, it really inspires me.




The lyrics are shown below.
"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've 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
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
Gotta get up and try, and try, and try"
(Try, a song by Pink)


It is simple, so simple... For other people, maybe these lyrics mean nothing. But, if we try to take a look more deeply, we will find the spirit of life. YOU'VE GOT TO GET UP, AND TRY, AND TRY...

For sure, everybody have their own hope. Everybody have their own dream as well. In order to reach hope and dream, there will be efforts needed to be done. Hope and dream are our desire. Just like the lyric above, when there is desire, there is gonna be a flame. When there is a flame, someone's bound to get burned but just because it burns does not mean you are going to die. You have got to get up, and try... Just like the lyrics... Yes, just like the song.

Other tagline said that "some dreams come true, some dreams do not; but that should never stop us from having good dreams (@aniesbaswedan)." There will be mistake happening, do not be afraid of it. We just need to admit it and take it as our lessons, our experiences, and our process of learning. YOU'VE GOT TO GET UP, AND TRY, AND TRY...


Happiness comes when we stop complaining about the troubles (read: the flame, the burns) we have, and give thanks to God for all troubles we do not have. Love life, embrace changes, and feel good anyway... YOU'VE GOT TO GET UP, AND TRY, AND TRY...
