Go On

go on,
skin your knees early, baby,
take a header into why not?
failing isn’t fatal

you’ll learn time can heal &
scars can’t kill beautiful

the world will be a harsh place at times,
hold your own in it

go on,
say your prayers, baby,
seek help from the heavens if you want to,
’cause at times the world lacks grace 

but go on,
walk into walls,
miss deadlines,
shatter ancient glass,
trip over yourself,
fall down, fall out,
then get up and
keep walking

that’s how you’ll find out
the world still holds surprises
for those who don’t quit

so make some mistakes,
fuck-up big time,
then get your ass up,
and go on!

*To my sweet baby A – falling only builds your ‘get back up’ muscles. Just try to avoid the potholes of perfection. They’re filled with those who haven’t fallen. Yet.

Never stay down. If you have to grab onto someone’s hand to get up – don’t hesitate. Just know that the hand is offered free of condition or opinion.

Falling is a unique experience. It may look like another’s but it’s truly yours to digest, learn and heal from. Don’t let another’s experience dictate how you rise. For then you risk being an imitation instead of the original you are. There are enough mocking birds on the planet –  bring your own melody to the chorus of humanity.
