Keep on trying

Keep on Trying

A matt of timeless grace
stomped on, exploited
a jug of sweet generosity
sucked dry, barren.

A fount of appreciation
impersonal, objective
a candle of beauty
quenched, unlighting.

A girl just like others,
excluded, prohibited
a desire for acceptance
rejected, unwanted.

Exhausting tears bring rest for the wounded
to live another day is to keep on trying.
