How Do You?

how do you jump
after hard falls
and skinned knees

how do you love
after rejection's tears
being carelessly used

how do you trust
when everything true and real
is shattered, scattered around your feet

how do you move on
when the shadows of past
still linger in the air

how do you believe
when tomorrow is never
easier than today

what's the secret
of the starry-eyed
the dreamers that never give in
the fighters that never back down

what do they know
that eludes this frightened heart
what do they have
that never sparked in me

teach me that faith
give me that strength
and passion and fearless will
that can never be broken or taken away
