120 ~ Why We Continue - Poem by stan pelfrey

we walk alone in a world of gloom
thinking nothing must get in our way
times have been hard for us to handle
but of us dreams have been made

keep thinking thoughts of greatness, yeah
deep in our minds we've set the track
is there a way to change destiny
by looking forward instead of back

why we continue
in a world that's not our own
why we continue
in thought of coming home
maybe we'll reach it
maybe we won't
but if we start slowing down
our minds will say 'Don't! '

hearts of fire keep smoldering
in a body of self and mind
when our past confronts our future
then it shall be our time

rising above our darkened souls
we seek shelter in ourselves
thinking thoughts that go way beyond
not conscious knowledge but in wealth

it's not always the richness of texture
lifestyle matters most
but if we end with a beginning
then our souls are sure to ghost

why we continue
in a world that's not our own
why we continue
in thought of coming home
maybe we'll reach it
maybe we won't
but if we start slowing down
our minds will say 'Don't! '
