Just Keep Walking

Just Keep Walking

A Poem by RiverRei

Stranded.
Alone.
No phone.
No help.

Walking.
A long stretch,
down the highway.
Cars whizzing by.

Abandoned.
Broken-hearted.
When will it end?
Road to disaster...

The path chosen
walk it 'til the end of the line.
How far does it go?
No signs to tell...

Just keep going...
maybe he'll come back...
just keep walking...
keep your head up...

Don't let them see.
No crying aloud.
Be strong.
Just keep walking...

Like the lost mind said... consider it a journey. Sometimes we go through dark moments, dark stages and we feel alone. The people we love and that love us aren't there and the love isn't fulfilling. It's up to you how you decide to be happy... but it's probably best to find and at least search for that happiness before you it gets worse. Good write... love the passion behind the words. Oh and it should be highway not high way.

Thanks Terrence :D
This certainly reads like panicked broken thoughts, and the inner psychiatrist trying to keep everything in order, and when I read your reply to Aaron it made a lot of sense for it to be written like that. Very good - explains the kind of distraught feeling in circumstances like that. I've been there a few times myself! I hope you get treated with a lot more thoughtfulness in the future! :o)

The feeling of being abandoned is what i felt through this write! To have no choice but to keeping walking..moving forward all the while wondering ..What happened? But each step make you stronger!
Brilliant write!

Very nice
I can actually feel the walking

I do not believe in giving up
And when you do give up it only means that person was not someone you really wanted

I have seen many walk away
Just means that it was all lies to start with

I do not walk away from anything or anyone
And crying is a sign of strength ..... that one can be weak and that's ok

Great poem

:) can you please check out my writing thanks :)

This is riddled with loneliness and yet has spirit. The internal pep-talk style of this is points to a strength of mind that is being utilised to paper over cracks when it could be helping solve the problem. Ignoring things won't make them go away.

"No crying aloud (allowed)" - very smart play on words RR.
Very admirable writing my friend.

Keep walking, keep hoping. Be strong and don't look back, maybe he'll follow you. And if not, he's not worth it. Very well done, RiverRei. :) Rudi

River, This current format in which you've been writing lately (short lines and stanzas) is really working well for you; you are learning very well how to eliminate extraneous words that clog up an idea (a problem I tend to have myself), sometimes less being more. This is wonderful writing. (I always read my stuff after being posted a few days and often make alterations; with this piece I would not change one thing). take care...dan
