Go On

Written by: Lisa Zaran | Biography
 Born woman.
Go on.
It's farther than it seems, but okay.
Credit card's been stolen.
Go on.
Above all, remember, whenever you cry, husbands roll their eyes, and children worry.
Go on.
The father that was yours gets killed by a lung disease.
He loved you, at least you think so.
Go on.
Drink, smoke, do drugs.
Go on.
Drag your crippled bones to work.
Hate your boss behind her back.
Smile to her face.
Go on.
Eat.
Don't eat.
Get fat.
Get skinny.
Go on.
Time fragments.
Space fractures.
Lives intersect.
Wombs bloom with new life.
Go on.
Wait.
Hold on.
