Life Goes On


D. A. Williams

D. A. is gone

But still somehow

The words linger on

The more you people read

The more you feel the need

To sit in astonishment

So just kick back

And reflect on his life's accomplishments

He survived war at home

Never as a soldier

But an innocent bystander

The battle raged for years

And he never surrendered

He felt the pain

Of eating meals

With a damned old food stamp

But the light in his eyes wouldn't die

And still shone on his path

Like the brightest of lamps

Worked two jobs in school

Solely as a means

Of self preservation

And walked long forgotten roads

With an unknown destination

Destination found

A wife and a daughter

And two new jobs

As husband and father

He endured the divorce

Made him feel like a failure

But found the strength

To carry on

When he turned to the Savior

If you read these words

Remember, we all go through s***

So dig down deep inside

And never say quit!!!
