Keepin On


Keepin On

Emotional chaos in constant demand
Meaningful notions but too few hands
We are stuck in the struggle of truth fate and shame
I can only look forward to a break in the rain

If only as simple as Peace Love and Light
I dream of the lack of all hate, greed, and strife
It pulls us in pulses too thick for despair
but give up and walk out I do not dare

For the same pain that blisters my heart
Will someday free me from a life filled with dark
Where no man has heartache for absence of love
To that peace in the sky and the home up above
