On Stress – Persevering Poetry (2)

Keep on…

Keep on holding on…

The world says:

I value your work.

I value your productivity.

The world says:

You can buy your happiness.

The world says:

You need more.

Keep on…

Keep on holding on…

The soul says:

I value you.

I value your beingness.

The soul says:

There is nothing to gain, and there is nothing to lose.

You need nothing but you.

Keep on…

Keep on holding on…

Until when?

Until there is no you?

Tick, tock,

Goes the clock.

Round and round you go.

Always wanting,

Always needing,

To hold on.

Tick, tock,

Goes the clock.

Round and round you go.

Until…

Until you stop.

Until you let it all go.
