Loneliness drips like icing
Coating the chalky cake of everyday
Loneliness flows like lava
Oozing down life’s barren land scrape
Loneliness scorches any hint of happiness
That dares to poke a timid head
Up through our daily sand
Loneliness hails hard
Down on our hurting head

Ignore the emptiness
No matter how bad that it gets
Shake off any pain
Break out of the gate
Let it all come ripping through you
Revel in the struggle
Never doubt yourself
Keep pounding straight ahead
Don’t give up
Don’t give up
