Keep on Standing

Keep on standing

at the water's edge.

Searching for a way back home.

The tears have dried,

A smile's on your face.

Still you feel lost and all alone.


Frightened child

Listened to their words,

Saying that you'll never fly.

They closed the doors,

Hid you from yourself.

And, these things they will all deny.


Run on forever

But, you can't escape

Always hiding there inside.

Forget the past,

A new life awaits.

You'll never know until you've tried.

How visceral, I enjoyed it immensely. It leaves the reader pondering the meaning, and I think I have a few theories. Very inspiring.
