Those Who Forge Ahead

Post by carndo » Thu Jun 27, 2019 10:05 am

run from the guns and hatred
that races red with the blood
which flows from whence you came
only wanting freedom
for your little ones

you weep that sorrow
which cuts deep
within your heart
knowing that you never
can return home

yet you know
it must be
if your kids ever
have a future

so you bear the indignities
in a place
that you know not the language

but maybe time
is meant for those
who forge ahead
reaching a simple moment
with those who share
your name

Mortal lovers must not try to remain at the first step; for lasting passion is the dream of a harlot and from it we wake in despair.-C. S. Lewis
