Hard Enough

When walking is too much trouble
when running seems impossible
when politics make you grovel
you are not trying hard enough
not hard enough.

Women who disdain men
men who complain about women
writers leaving stains of poetry
are not trying hard enough.
Try hard to break through.

[chorus]
Different direction looking
where the wind comes
from
dried fruit and jerky stocked up
you’ve got to muster some
more backbone.

[verse]
What have you been so hard at work at
all of your blessed life friend
pockets empty of cash or cards
got any family
got any magic words?

Comes in a time of need
just enough strength and speed
get up off of your knees because
praying ain’t hard enough.
Hard is as hard does.

Different direction looking
where the wind comes
from
dried fruit and jerky stocked up
you’ve got to muster some
more backbone.
