Hold On


Hold On

I learned something through time
You gotta stay strong
Cause everyday's a fight
A struggle to hold on

People joining gangs everyday
Like as if it were a club
I just don't know what to say
Maybe it's the way the world goes on

But I don't think it's fair
The way things are going
Bullets shooting through the air
Killing a bunch of people like nothing

I wish I could do something
To stop it all
But I'm already fighting
Eventually I will fall

But i learned another thing through time
Just don't carry a gun
That way you don't taint your mind
And you could hold on

Poetry is not an expression of the party line. It's that time of night, lying in bed, thinking what you really think, making the private world public, that's what the poet does.

Allen Ginsberg (1926-1997) U.S. poet.
