KEEP MOVING ON
Move on to the next immovable object
And failing to move it,
Go around it or go through it,
Bang your head against a brick wall,
Stub your toe on the floor,
Catch your hand in that fast closing door,
Leave behind the broken heart,
Absorb the hurt.
Make a new start,
Because over the horizon
There will be a new day,
A new sun,
And even if there isn’t,
Even if there is storm and darkness,
And the sun has set and long since gone,
For you’re here and whilst you’re here,
Filled with fury, love and passion,
Give it another go.
Leave yourself wide open,
Take it in your stride.
Though you may hesitate and you may falter,
Regroup, reform, return,
Live life to the full and learn
To move on.
