Stop and Restart

By gaganyatri

There are long days of inactivity

Longer nights of silence and stillness

The cold gets into the bones, slowing things around

Doubts and failures start to blind the front-view

Look ahead, try to keep the oil burning

There will be harder days ahead, barely able to survive

But move ahead, one step at a time

Pick up the fallen pieces, Let of past burdens

The treachery of others, the thoughts of vengeance will

Only pull you back down,

Do what you wish once in a while, not everyday can be paradise

Stop

And Restart
