When You Seem Tired - Poem by samuel nze

When you seem tired
You need not worry
The journey is trying
I know that well

Stifle the yawn
And brace up
You may be startled to learn that
Tomorrow may bring relief

It may not be true
That you are squelched
Ad ignorantiam is
A fallacy of philosophy

The truth is that you seem
A little too tired
Tell yourself that even so you
Need to get to the end.
