Year 2: Day 17 – Standing Tall

Am I ever so brokenhearted,
enough to quit?

When I’ve gathered each piece
of peripheral knowledge,
have I ever done anything but
what I wanted to do?

It weighs down hard
like a chest pain sometimes,
that certainty of moving along,
but also it is light.

There is light in time
on our roads, and we know this is true-

we have never quit
but that we were already
standing tall.

 

Don’t forget to check out my first anthology, Candy Pizza: Poetry that’s Fun and Healthy, available on Amazon & Kindle.
