My Prayer Today, 4/30/16

Hold me up as
I threaten to
slump underneath
the weight of all
considered daily living.
Seems to be seated
squarely on my head
pressed down to my shoulders
straining my neck
and spine
under the weight of
trying to move forward
like nothing major
in me has died.

Poem #20 for National Poetry Month. Completed May 1, 2016. Posting is not always something I have time for, since my days are so full of random necessary stuff. In this second quarter, I’m working on posting more because this is something fully for me.
