          Move On

Where do you go to escape yourself;
Is there someplace to hide from your fears?
Can it be that - somewhere - there's a land bright and fair,
Where life is unblemished by tears?
  
Where can you run, when loneliness comes,
And darkness creeps into your heart;
When Sorrow, unbidden, steals in through the gate,
And nothing can make him depart?
  
How do you cope, when you've given up hope,
And your will to continue is gone?
When it seems no-one cares, and you're filled with despair...
Pick yourself up, and move on.

You know... I really love your work. It always makes me think. This one is great because it is so optimistic even when everything looks so bleak. So here's to movin' on.

Jeffrey - thank you, my friend!  Yes, our latest posts DO have a common theme.  I'm partial to yours, though.    I love you man, LOL!

WildChild - thank you for your kind comments!  Sometimes moving on is much easier said than done...but what other choice do we have?  

Bobbycat - thanks!  And, yes - we each reach a point where we need to move on, before life passes us by.  

Thanks again to all of you for reading and responding!


Troy

Troy,
   After love poetry, inspirational poetry is my next choice, and this was great.I especially loved the last lines:

How do you cope, when you've given up hope,
And your will to continue is gone?
When it seems no-one cares, and you're filled with despair...
Pick yourself up, and move on.

Great poem!
