Keep holding on,
they tell me thoughts are but fleeting
wisps chanting for your attention

Keep holding on,
they say that in finding peace you're beating
the darkness that surrounds you

Keep holding on,
they praise the light, but maybe it's the light
that makes on suffer when wounds are
clear for everyone to see

Keep holding on,
they tell me, yet they've never dangled in fright
of the clutches of the unknown

Keep holding on,
but I can't
