Looking out at the moon shining in the sky
I can’t help but feel that enticement to howl
With all the feelings that are going through
Not sure it would come out as more than a growl.
As you see how much life can try to throw
All you can do is try to roll with the pain
So many times there is nothing left to feel
If you bow to it, you’ve nothing left to gain.
At times I feel we are tested to build strength
Letting your heart guide the path that you follow
Even if we can’t see how anything positive comes
Can leave you with something bitter to swallow.
So I look at the moon and forget for a bit
I let go of the thoughts that make me tear
After years of memories to keep me strong
My head erect I remember that I’m still here.
