Stay the Course…

it’s incomprehensible. All alone

Even as those in my life nearby fear

The dreadful future humans face. Unknown

Is what lies ahead. I cannot appear

Racked with anxiety for those I love,

Vulnerable and young, not yet equipped

To deal with such horrors. It’s mine to prove

An inner strength a resolve, with tight-lipped

Determination not to fall prey to

The vagaries of the uninformed mind

That would poison the tough, courageous few

Who soldier on in the face of the blind,

The ignorant, for whom turning away

Is how they cope, what gets them through the day.
