Don't Stop Now

You will always find

Reasons to quit.

Towels in, feet up,

Calling it a night.

But nights aren’t

Meant to last forever.

And morning mist

Doesn’t mean the

Sun has died

Just because your feet are cold.

You will always find

Bigger problems than

Your glimmer hope dreams,

But have you ever seen

One candle in a dark

Gymnasium?

It has the moxie

To capture attention from

The opposite corner,

And I read somewhere

That a candle

Loses nothing by

Lighting another candle.

Don’t stop now.
