Keep Moving

Desktop Nexus: Surrender

and still you
rise from the ashes
of defeat to fight
another day.
Courage has nothing to do
with determination.
We all have demons,
we all at one time feel
even if we do not admit it to others
to ourselves.
Take a moment
catch your breath.
I will not judge or criticize
It is not my place.
All I ask is that,
in time,
you pick yourself up,
brush off the dust that is your pain
and try again.
Never forget
never diminish
what you have endured.
It will make you who you are.
