The burden of responsibility
Can push you down
To depths you never knew existed.
It can break you into pieces
That may never be whole again.
Survival is the only accessible mode
To keep going, moving on,
One foot in front of the other.
Some days are tougher than others
As your autopilot light fades away.
Keep your eyes on the road,
Focus on the horizon of hope,
Follow the path of light
That is yours for the asking.
