I have made a promise To myself To keep on walking Until the end To persevere Against all the odds. ‘Coz when it gets tougher The rough gets rougher. The bets are higher. The winnings greater Just need to stick a bit long. Smile, sweat and song. It is a lone struggle Against the very nature The lessons of yore Stacks of customs and mores. A steep incline I climb and climb. Sores on my feet Fire in my soul. Now that I see the path. I can’t do nothing but walk. To be willfully blind Is the height of folly.
Fill in the space
Between the dark and light
Between the dawn and night.
Of dreams so chaste
Flights of innocence
Purest in essence.
Please let me keep
The promise of slumber
No chains to encumber.
“Wait for you, I do each night;
Take me in your arms, in sweetest delight.
Each moment I struggle, each minute I fight
Alas! Every time, it’s a dark, endless flight.
Wait for you, I do each night
A gaze bleary, a sunken sight.
Lie by my side, ease my plight.
Seep in my soul, make it right.”
