“No one is without troubles, without personal hardships and genuine challenges. That fact may not be obvious because most people don’t advertise their woes and heartaches. But nobody, not even the purest heart, escapes life without suffering battle scars.” ~Richelle E. Goodrich
This piece is dedicated to individuals going through life challenges. Whether it be a relationship, family, work, career, income, business, or just figuring out how to start all over. Remember to seek out support when you need to. Additionally, see yourself in a different light. You are an overcomer and not a victim of circumstances.
I can hear thunder beneath my breath
I can hear the movement in my chest
The sound of a heart
The sound of worry
The worst combination of emotions
Your eyes begin to play tricks
Lies are replayed once more
As your mind wander
Do you know the sensation of waiting?
The noise is too light to acknowledge
You only stand still
Not knowing what awaits on the other side
Do you know the sensation of being looked upon?
An eye staring down at you
Cold palms touching lightly on your shoulders
A smoke array of words
Too thin to conceptualize
Do you know why I always feel tired?
I am distressed
I hold bowls of heartbreak
Memories torture me daily
Rest is not allowed
Sleep is brief
Do you know how it feels to lay at night?
But can’t find rest
