Courage to continue and keep keeping on
frequently is lauded, poetry and song.
Child wracked with cancer, the mom who’s now widow,
are viewed reverently, tug at heart strings so.

Trite, untruthful saying, “Darkest before dawn,”
is meant to encourage, and keep struggling on.
Just around the corner! Just over this ridge!
Babe, we’re gonna make it! Break free from bondage!

Time of greatest darkness not followed by dawn,
darkest hour’s midnight; hour demons spawn.
Demons small and mighty power to destroy
there’s no optimism and no light of joy.

Words used to encourage, “Don’t give up the ship!”
Are balm for survivors, what of those who’ve slipped?
Slipped beyond believing new day brings new hope
who with thousand burdens can no longer cope?

Speak to me no bromides, false promise me not,
my darkness has thin wire and loves to garrote.
Death by suffocation, eyes wide suffering,
is not soothed by sunlight, drives out no aching.

Scrapes and lacerations have grown putrescent.
My once healthy being? Thoroughly corrupt.
I may struggle onward, with pain greet the day,
make me no false promise, lies do not allay.

Courage to continue and keep keeping on
frequently is lauded, poetry and song.
Courage to continue and keep keeping on
frequently is lauded, poetry and song.
