Feeling Tired

I’m trying to muster up the strength

That I will need for the day.

I am trying to muster up the patience

That I will need for these people.

I am trying to stretch my lips

Into a smile

And welcome each beating heart

As if it were my own,

But my lips turn downwards

And my eyes flicker and grow

Heavy

And I stop trying.

I cease striving.

I sit back

And sit a coffee

Praying that I will be enough for this world

And almost start to cry

As I remember that I don’t have to.
