Determination

(I wrote this poem as a young teenager. I found it when leaving an abusive husband. I have since printed it out, framed it, and hung it in my living room.

I must keep going
through the failure and pain
the highway of life
is not all in vain

Through the sorrows
discomforts and anger
I must keep going
and keep myself from danger

Each passing day will bring
experiences of any different kind
and through each passing day
will bring a different state of mind

I must keep going
not pity myself or grieve
for the future that lies ahead
I may not receive

I will get through life
and all along knowing
of pain and happiness
but, I must keep going
