How Long

By Bruce Clifford

Distance in this place in time
Resistance and a will to survive
How long can this go on
How far before we are torn


Morning comes
Itís the same as yesterday
How long can this go on
How lost while trying to belong


Night appears, but dreams never fade away
The stars align in such a faulty way


How long
How long until we reach this place
How long
How long until we find our space
How long before we can enter this race


Days and nights will follow
Will there be a new tomorrow
How long can this go on
How far before we are worn
