Keep Walking

If you keep walking, you will make it through the forest.

If you keep walking, you'll get through the storm.

But dear god, don't turn around.

Dear God, don't you sit down.

For if you turn around, you will wander.

And if you sit you will ponder. 

For if you turn around you will be lost.

And if you sit... You will be forgotten. 

If you turn around, you will find a bear. A bear of the past. The same one you conquered long ago. 

And if you sit, the bear will find you on its way to the river to catch salmon. And because the bear is hungry, he will devour you. 

So please, for the love of god, keep walking.
