Perseverance – Heike Lucht

Rolling with the tides of life

Accepting change as constant

It needn’t be comfortable, only inevitable

I may as well just roll with it

Come up for air once in a while

Then dive back in, sink or swim

Because tide and time wait for no one

I’m bound to find hope

If I choose to stay long enough;

Life can suck the light right out of me

I’ll hold on so tightly

The friction of my will to live

Kindles an ember in my still beating heart

So I can see my way

By the fire in my soul
