Monday, Monday

i have wanted to quit
to give it up and
i’m too young to think like that
there is fire in my belly
i know
i put it there
fire, fire and stubborn fight

but it’s all so much
the cost doesn’t seem to
measure the price
it’s all too stupidly

though not always
we are able to hold on
to the little
if only to keep from
crying uselessly
beating our brains

grab a hold
and fall in line

anger later,
for now
keep your face to the wind
