Move Forward


Move forward
Don't turn back
Before the tears crack
And admit your losing heart

Of defeated
Of betrayal 
Of shame

Keep forward
Don't try to turn back
Because behind you there's only dark
That ready to swallow you hard

Of grief
Of failure
Of blame

Stay forward
Don't dare to turn back
Because what's left inside
Is only an ugly mark

Of shadow
Of desire
Of lame

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
