When all else fails

For https://poetsandstorytellersunited.blogspot.com/2020/06/weekly-scribblings-24-when-all-else.html

When all else fails,
and the wind will strain,
When your empire falls,
and the rivers dry up,
When the sun leaves a trail
of pricking yester pain,
Rise above the clouds
Like an eagle of prey.
Make your eyes sharp and
your wings strong.
Hone your shrills well
and harden your nerves.
Hunt down those reasons,
devour them raw.
Push it down your guts,
and digest them real slow.
Your blood will now
carry those reasons.
Your heart still beats,
and your eyes still blink.

You may now shout
For the whole world to hear-
I choose to be alive,
I choose to be alive
I choose to be alive.

  1. I loved this
    I reminded me of my fav song, Demons
    When your dreams all fail
    And the ones we hail
    Are the worst of all
    And the blood’s run stale

    Its goes like a song 😍😍😍
