Keep Going

Don’t say one day

say today

and you will find you arrive at a free day.

Listen not to naysayers for they

only want you to make the same mistakes as them to justify their failures:

giving up on dreams they couldn’t find the courage to fight for;

settling like dust on the pillars of convention.

Paint their mirror gazes black with your determination

so you never reflect the regret that bruised their egos.

Keep going.
