Survival can seem the impossible feat
But you roll up your sleeves and you sow all your seeds

from Brother Ali – Fajr Lyrics on Rap Genius


Rolling up one’s sleeves is an idiom for preparation of hard work — people often literally roll up their sleeves before doing difficult, physical work so that their shirts don’t get dirty. Sowing your seeds is to do something that will eventually bring about a particular result.

For many around the world, survival seems like a difficult, unattainable mission. However, if you take charge and work hard, you can accomplish it.
