Just One More Day
The static in my head
Has been replaced by the sounds
Of roaring inadequacies.
Small triumphs seem overshadowed
By every day tribulations
To no end in sight.
Blind faith seems the hardest of all
When every plan and anxious obsession
Has failed me again and again.
I am so small
And so tired.
My tears seem to fall unseen and unheard
As I stare into the darkness
And remind myself of all I've overcome.
The silence stares back at me
With an unyielding gaze
That tells me I have to keep going.
One more day.
Just one more.
