Keep Going


You’ll make it, I know you will,

You’ve come too far and now is not the time.

If only you stopped and thought about it all

The walls you’ve climbed, all the troubles crossed

All the failures faced, all the little victories

Look into the eyes of those beside you

The woman at the table

The man in the street

It’s there, deep-set perhaps – but there all the same,

The very same terror as you

A flicker of recognition in both your eyes, and then you move on.

So if they can live in temporary quiet desperation

Then so can you,

And one day soon you’ll make it across

To where you can start again

I know you will

You’ve come too far, to stop.
