to go on

In freedom, justice on August 30, 2009 at 1:58 am

tears well

muscles ache

lips quiver

voices crack

minds wonder

how it will be done.

shoulders droop

arms wrap

chests heave

knees buckle

under the pressure.

and yet

mouths smile

hands wave

heads nod

feet move

to go on

as tears well.
