My soul is exhausted

My body aches

The rate that I’ve lived

is unachievable now

I wonder if my youth is fading

My goals were 20 years long

But now all I can handle is getting through the day

I know the work is in the rest

and the pain is in the calm

I wonder how many layers of tension

I need to peel back

Before I can function again
