181 – Sisyphus

It’s not
That he doesn’t know
When to give up.

It’s more
That he just
Doesn’t know how.

Like a runaway train
On a single track
He just has
To keep going.

He may
Hit a wall,
Tumble over
And fall.

It doesn’t matter.

He just
Dusts himself off,
Gets back on his feet
And keeps going.

Embracing
Every beating
As life’s
Sparring partner.

Hard headed
And stubborn,
He stays
On track.

Each scar
A reminder
Of what it means
To feel alive.
