I Am Still, But You Go On

I cannot go on this way much longer 
Lift me up and make me stronger
I am still, but you go on

So many things to swallow
Do not just come from a prescription bottle
I am still, but you go on

You portray as if there is nothing wrong
While I lay and sing sad songs
I am still, but you go on

I am lying in all this waste
You study, study, cut and paste
I am still, but you go on

The gym is where you always go
I cannot get up, I am too low
I am still, but you go on

Help me now before it is too late
I am unsure of my own fate
I am still, but you go on

Problems, problems there are so many
My shoulders are weak, cannot handle any
I am still, but you go on

I look to you for some resolve
But nothing seems to dissolve
I am still, but you go on

A future with no plans
You do not see the issues at hand
I am still, but you go on

This stage we are in is serious
Cannot you see it is making me delirious
I am still, but you go on

Contradictions are many
I’m tired of hearing any  ~
Holly is still, but you go on.

    an oldie Holly, time as a healer, hope is abound, yet your poetry still is so full of sincerity, and in that you give us all hope....

    A touching poem Holly, deep emotions. It's easy to say that life goes on ..... but now is the time for grief .... and this time is also important. - Thinking a lot of you Holly. - oxox / / Anne-Lise :)

    WHoa Holly, this is very well written! The thoughts tumble into each other very well and the refrain highlights the theme clearly. Well done!
