Afterwards
What do you do.

Carry on.

Examine your life,
and contemplate the future.

Carry on.

Sickness of any kind
must be fought,
with a will.

Carry on.
Let the sharp knives
do their job
and excise away
the darkness.

Carry on.

Death is very real
when they ask your loved one 
the vital question 
and you aren't aware
that they're 
there.

Carry on.

Watching each new day dawn 
as you expand
your new found 
boundaries
to the limits.

Carry on.

Growing strong
everyday
with resources
still untapped
and life 
still 
to be lived.

Carry on.
