How Much?

A full moon, countless stars, and a sky so clear

wide awake with sleep nowhere near

Three days with no rest

I put my body to the test

I ressurect memories of the past

I ask myself, "How much longer does this last?"

"How much longer of darkness with no light?"

"How much stronger must I fight?"

"How much longer of the fears?"

"How much longer of the tears?"

"How much longer of the pain?"

"How much of me still remains?"

Author's Notes/Comments: 

This is one of my first poems. It really sucked, but it's cool to look back and see how much I've improved

I know we are our own worst critics but poetry never sucks as long as it's real. Great job man.
