Don'T Lose Your Will

It's a long way in
to this point of no return.
When you just can't win
and everything you get you earn.
Stuck in a losing streak
where you know you can't look back.
Canteen's sprung a leak
and your map is way off-track.

There's no way out
but you can't stand still.
Just don't look back
and don't lose your will.

It's a long, long road
when it's energy you lack.
And it's a heavy load
that you carry on your back.
And you travel on
with no companions
at your side.
And that road is long
so you keep up withyour stride.

There's no way out
and you can't stand still.
Just don't look back
and don't lose your will.

I needed to read this one today, because I feel like I'm fighting an uphill battle with something and there's barely enough energy to keep on going! You're right...I just can't lose my will. Awesome, inspiring poem.
