Importance of Persistence

Whether I want it to or not,
the world keeps spinning,
everything keeps going,
and time keeps moving;
even when I try my hardest to stand still. 

Finding calm waters
in the waves of this society
is like describing how I love my love
finding the exact words in me. 

I know I must keep going. 
I have to, 
even if I don't want to,
especially when I don't want to. 

But I always must
and I always will. 
If the world keeps going on, 
then so must I.
