WHAT KEEPS ME GOING

( after Agnes Török )    
    
Justice:      
   or the thought thereof—      
       its very existence      
   an experience of hope—      
     
   that thing      
       you almost forgot      
   while suffering    
      its grave counterpart;      
     
so liberating its truth      
  you are almost too afraid    
  to accept      
    it is what you deserve—      
     
it’s fairies      
sending you to sleep      
         with dreams again;      
     
a prodigal son      
being received      
         by gratitude;    
     
 or, belief in the unknown—    
         that which is to come:    
 a reward of faith—    
 
the seemingly impossible coming to pass;  
       an ant who wrestled an elephant    
       walking away unscathed
