Answer to Our Youth

By Dennis O’Brien, Air Force

Writing Type: Poem

By Dennis Edward O'Brien

VA Medical Center--Wilkes-Barre, PA


You've got to keep going
as you keep your mind intact.
Realize you are growing;
this truth has its fact!

You've got to keep going
even when hurt along the way.
It matters what you're showing
as well as what you say!

You've got to keep going;
believe in your dream.
It’s you that is knowing;
True love you can redeem!

You've got to keep going;
don't give up in defeat.
Life is always bestowing;
good and bad days we all greet!

You've got to keep going;
you know it helps to have a friend.
A true one is always growing,
one where there is no end!

You've got to keep going;
accept this as your truth.
It's you who can be showing
an answer to our youth!

Keep carrying on!
Yes, keep carrying on!
