A Poem A Day #144

How can I not go on?

When my heart feels hardened as stone,
And I lose the will to stand,
I look to the sky, and remember
That once upon a time
Someone worked hard to make it,
And they didn’t give up
And leave it blue and empty.
They gave it clouds and birds
And stars for the night.
And they gave it the Sun,
Which shines down hope on me.
With such a reminder as that,
How can I not go on?
