Poem: Reasons To Keep On

Reasons to keep on

We build crystal palaces
Outside our tarpaper shacks of dreams

They make each other gleam
In juxtaposition

You can't be sure about the next world
Or the ones beyond that

All is never lost
But often gets misplaced

It's better to sit in the sun
And think about

That Cold Island across the river
Than the other way around

Our toys do not matter
This is as good as it gets

And it may be this good
Or better tomorrow.
