Life goes on

Spoken Word

Like fireflies I linger longingly

Hovering above the horizon

Playing songs along the harp strings

Of the unmoving constellations.

Watching as the world rotates slowly

Life goes on solemnly. Never ceasing

Somewhere a baby is being born

And another is being made

A grandmother has died

And a husband has lied,

About where he has been....

And a wife decided to believe him.

Children have cried, longing for a mother

But daddy knows she won't return.

And a young woman smiles

Into the eyes of a new found love

While another waves goodbye to one

She has known for seven years. 

None of them stopping to realize

Life goes on.
