hard to breathe
hard to focus
hard to see any way forward
so hard to want to live.
There is still
so much to live for
a child struggling to understand
another thinking she does but hiding sadness
a man so brave but yet so pained
a woman so hurt by loss she cries
she cries herself to sleep at night
and you, a duty to help despite yourself.
what of you?
Can you make your way again?
through all of this pain…
Will you ever be happy?
is surely a mystery
can only ever
do our best…
