HURT MOCKER
(2/24/19)


go ahead

lie down

feel
bad

admit
defeat

die

or get
mad

keep
moving

while
you still
can

work
through
the pain

through
the weakness

never
stop

until
you are
stopped
for good

there
are many
willing
to console
you

to give
up
on you

do not
give in
to them

run
steady

stay
the course

despite
their
comforts

despite
their
warnings

they
do not
know
you

run on

alone
