Carry On….. By, L D Wright

Carry On…..

Can’t knock me down, well not for too long. These feet are planted firmly where they belong.

Walked this ground like it belongs to me and this ain’t no place new, it’s been my old stomping ground for about forever now.

I’ll hold my breath longer than you have patience so don’t wait for me to cave in, it’s not part of my behaviour.

This didn’t break me, it just set me back a little but now I’m back and I’m firing on full throttle.

Dived into the fires, covered in smoke but now it’s all clear and I’m only going forward.

Been to the brink when most thought I’d sink, took me a while but I didn’t think there was a time limit.

Some shits hard to break free from but now it’s behind me.

I’ve shattered whatever tried to break me and that shit storm is over as I bask in the sunshine.

Some weather brings black clouds with rolling thunder but I prefer to shine like I’m supposed too.

Life hasn’t been easy but whatever is, if its worth doing then you have to go through certain bad events.

Tomorrows always coming, just another day, grab it with both hands and don’t ever let it rain on your parade.

Time and time and time again storms blow in but blow out again.

You’ll see me smile when the lightning cracks because I know the sun’s on the horizon, it just hasn’t reached me yet.

When life’s void pulls you in be prepared to claw your way back out again.

It isn’t no pleasure cruise when life starts to crumble but just remember your stronger than this, infact anything.

Don’t carry guilt, don’t drag the nightmares around, let go of that like you just grabbed hot coals.

When the eruptions block out the sun remember when the dust settles you aren’t on your own.

Don’t linger on the burdens, don’t surrender, this is your life and its such a huge glorious multi coloured picture.

So sadness & bad times effect us, keep them like a lesson learnt but remember you dropped that hurt before your fingers got burnt.

Only skin and bones but one with a heart of pure gold, let the sun shine, the storms will pass so carry on smiling regardless.

Life will take you back to times you’d rather forget but just look at your feet and take the first step.

Take a look, see how far you’ve come, see what stopped you once has now come and gone allowing you to Carry On.

Hi there, I'm Lee, I live in the UK in a small town called Blackburn. If I'm not working in the steel industry or training in karate, I'm out walking and taking pictures. I love taking photos and making them beautiful. I have struggled with depression and anxiety for a very long time. My writing run alongside my issues,  personal pitfalls, and experiences through life. Some experiences sad, some dark, but always honest. I treat my writing as my personal therapist., letting my thoughts out in words. This releases my inner demons and settles my personal head space.
