Can I Go On?

Can I go on?

My desire
a raging fire,
will it be stopped the burden I carry?
Burden of hard work and emotional tyranny,
seen only as a liquid
as it sheds from my eyes and body

Will the burden turn my desire to vapor?
Will the water be so heavy
as to drop my knees to the floor?
Or will my fire evaporate the water?

With my knees light
stand I shall,
but do I stand tall enough?

He is taller
though only through my eyes,
another look I take
his heart falls short of size

As he plays with his skill,
I shall win with my will

Standing Tall ---
I can go on
