Poem of the day

Standard

Hey Everyone!

I’m gonna start posting a poem of the day like I said before I’m gonna try to put something up here every day and If I miss a day or two hope I’m missed! I’ll just put random poetry up here and yes, I’ll post mine sometime in the future I’d rather wait til’ my book is finished! Hope you like the poem I picked for today!!

 

                                                    

Go On  by Lisa Zaran
Born woman. Go on.
It’s farther than it seems,
but okay.

Credit card’s been stolen.
Go on.

Above all, remember,
whenever you cry,
husbands roll their eyes,

and children worry.

Go on.

The father that was yours
gets killed by a lung disease.

He loved you, at least you think so.
Go on.

Drink, smoke, do drugs.

Go on.

Drag your crippled bones
to work. Hate your boss
behind her back. Smile

to her face. Go on.

Eat. Don’t eat. Get fat.
Get skinny. Go on.

Time fragments.
Space fractures.
Lives intersect.
Wombs bloom

with new life. Go on.
Wait.

Hold on.
