When I am done,

will I go on?

When I have spoken,

will I rest my tongue?

When I have sung

all of my songs,

will I go on?

Will I go on?


When I have written

every word,

will I wake in the morning,

or sleep in the dirt?

If I choose confession,

will those I have hurt

learn to know comfort

and not pain in this world?


Can I keep moving

when I’m out of step?

I’ve sat back and wallowed

in every regret

and I can’t help but wonder,

how much I have left.

How much have I wasted?

What do I expect?

Can I try tomorrow?

Will there be a tomorrow?
