Stand Until I Can't

by Tony   Aug 28, 2017


Here I stand with no regrets
In the eye of my perfect storm
Arms out wide and calm inside
Chaos has become my norm

By the wind I was buffeted
My body weathered by the gale
In my mind one thought to find
"Through this I will prevail"

And as the wall approaches me
By the maelstrom I'm consumed
I set my feet resist defeat
Accepting that I am doomed
