Hold On


Sometimes you just need to cry;
don't beat yourself up
for caving in.


We all implode
once in a while.


Tears make us feel alive.


But don't let your thoughts
meander to giving up.


Dying isn't an option
you should ever consider.


Hold on for tonight
because tomorrow is another day.


When you wake up
and wipe your eyes,
you'll feel differently.


The morning light
brings a new outlook.


Your tears will give way
to a smile.
