Don’t stop!

Don’t stop!

Don’t stop!

Keep on going
look  forward
at the end of an endless road
at the edge of a bridge
leading to another place…
Where you keep on going
hiding your tears in pockets.
Don’t stop! You can’t stop…
Live today for tomorrow
for tomorrow is your day!
Keep your legs moving,
your brain ticking,
your heart beating,
your breath short
run, keep on running…
Take the next step after the next
keep on moving!
May your memories be your fuel,
may your pain be your strength
Expand yourself,
reach for the further you,
freeze your fears
save your panic
Flashes & lights…
Follow them!
Enlarge your space,
make it wider,
no limits.
Look up see the sky
keep its blue in your dreams
the pure white of the clouds in your mind
and … keep on going!
Never turn back
the mirror of your soul
will reflect your past
the ways of your heart
will lead the journey!

  1. Laura, I love the message of hope and perserverence! I always enjoy “handing your words back to you” because your words are so fully packed with meaning, imagery and truth.

    “hiding your tears in pockets” is such a beautiful way to say keep moving in the midst of your pain and heartache and when I read:

    “may your memories be your fuel
    may your pain be your strength”

    I had to stop and read it again and again. The words of a true poet concerning moments of both the head and the heart.

    Again I stopped and sat in wonder as I read your words:

    “look up see the sky
    keep its blue in your dreams”

    Unreal, the vivid picture this conjures up and at the same time the simplicity of peaceful calm in your dreams… dreams of hope and promise brought to focus by the serenity of the blue sky.

    Again you left me breathless as I read from line to line. I anxiously await the publication of your book!

    Thank you for the uplifting words.

  2. Your words arranged to excite the reader with hope and courage, are salubrious for our hearts and minds to cope and persevere. Thank you for sharing your beautiful poem. xo

  3. Laura,

    As always – is perfection and beauty all rolled into one. Glad to see you writing and sharing again. Please keep doing so!


  4. Love the motion forward – never stopping , straining against tomorrow

    Thanks my dear for the One Shot

    love and appreciate you – MDW

  5. Thank you All for reading my Verses in Motion! Truly blessed by your words…
    This poem was inspired by my hero, my father Lucio Mercurio (RIP) who always woke up with a smile and a prayer, who taught me to have faith no matter what! And to believe that at the dawn of each new day we have another chance to follow our dreams, our hopes!
    I miss him every minute of every day but at the same time I know he is here with me… Smiling and singing, praying and loving us all, endlessly!
    Much love to you ALL, you are wonderful!!!
