Hang in There


It’s gonna be alright, Kid.

After this,

there’ll be another day.

Not every sun sets on tragedy.

Not every breath comes

in tears and pain.

It’s gonna be alright again.

Your heart will mend.

Your body will heal.

Your mind will find

new thoughts to make you smile.

Not everything in this world

is meant to make sense,

and once you understand that,

you’ll see what really does.

Don’t be afraid of days like these.

Don’t mistake these moments for defeats.

You will learn to rise

every time you fall,

and find what’s most important after all.

It’s gonna be alright.

No need to make the night

darker than it already is.

The sun will come

and color will remain

in the world,

in your life again.
