PUSHING ON: A Poem

Why are you hidden in darkness?
You have all that it takes,
To survive or drown.
Only you can free your soul
From swelling like a desert root.

Put aside all fear.
Stop wondering where to go
Or where the hell you are.
Unbar the door and go outside.
Feel the warm wind and see the bright sunlight.

Why would you quit now?
You haven’t seen everything.
You haven’t lived long enough.
Pain and joy are a twined pair.
There are smiles and groans in every season.

So seek those hills
Where your heart finds ease
But burst upon the night
And shake the stars
Until joy rains from the sky.

Don’t wait for the tide to turn.
Embark on those long adventures.
Find new locations to explore.
Journey with the winds
And crucify your cancerous pain.

You have tread too far to turn back now.
Let messages of hope speak from your eyes
And with happiness make love.
Yes, toil and strive from day to day
Till your last delight is known.

Kneel, pray, weep,
Don’t be prey to life’s hunters,
Feed your crying heart hope,
Be diligent when you reach,
Unveil the stars in your glance
