Leaning Forward

Leaning Forward

1 min 290 1 min 290

Leaning forward into life

Meaningful as it is

Sit on the edge

Work for the things to happen.

The dark lines of strain

Like cloud come and go away.


The what-to-do list

Hangs on the wall

Today is gone.

Done is not enough.

Unforgiving minutes are on.

Risk not forget the goal.


The feet are forward 

And the body stretched

Always it is a race.

Look back the track

The dream is distressed. 

Never know how far I come.


Moving forward 

Work through the day

Puzzles come and solved.

The problems do not fade 

Escapes are the last refuge

The resolution is messed.


Life spent on leaning

All but distant run 

The battle may be over

Hopelessly we learn

The living overtakes life.

That war is on.
