KEEP ON

Sometimes, 
When I find that life's not fair, 
When Isee that fortune, love, and friendship look away from me, 
I stare at the cards that life places in my hands, and,
I move them around a bit and try to find
their highest value for moving on this rough-rough road. 
That's all. 

Just keeping on, 
moving on, moving those cards until 
I see my best hand taking shape from within itself
, perhaps my own potential - possibilites.  

It may be a metaphor for "hope" , 

that inner voice that tells me 
"just one more step man - 
just one more breath- 
just once more over that next hill - 
just one more day - 
just one more mile -
just -Keep On!
