What if I can’t?

Good evening from here dear blogosphere. A little poem of affirmation to remind us that we are doing everything & we deserve rest too. 💜💜💜

Sometimes

When I’m tired

As I am now

I question

Everything

About me

I then remind myself

As gently as I can

As long as I rest

As I am now

I can always

Resume

My incremental

Trajectory

These days

These days

I can rembember

Why

About you

In a way

It worked

Because

It was never

Meant to

Until it didn’t

& then we

Were not

Again

Again is after

Though

Cycles of

Relinquishing

Suspended heart

I cannot understand

This life

Yet it arrives

& you will be

& I will be

& it will be

The end is never what you expect
