I’ve been trying

Head down

Fingers nimble

Quilting phrases

Mind focused

Turning my words

Inside out

Searching them

Owning them

Teaching them

To be kinder

More considerate

More inspiring

More motivational

But they mock me

Laughing until

Their echoes

Sound like screeching


Inside my head

I want to give up

I need to give in

I want it to stop

I need it to end

Who the hell

Said I had strength

Not me I said

Some of us

Are always fighting

  1. This was a perfect statement. Some of us are always fighting shadows. It’s constant, and sometimes feels like it’s never going to let up. Just standing up is winning.
