Endless Cliff

by LostWords   Feb 17, 2013

I am so drained of watching myself fail and struggle,
no matter how hard I try. Is it never enough?
How do I change who I am, when I like who I am?
Teach me how to focus, give me the vigor
to overcome myself. Because quite frankly,
I am getting annoyed at how easily everyone
else can do the simplest things,
and then tote them in my face
as if I'm not trying hard enough.

I don't want to live like this anymore.
Sometimes I stand at the curb just before
I walk onto campus and imagine I'm jumping off
an endless cliff into a vast, beautiful space.
Falling past the stars and planets with unrealistic speed,
I find my dream suddenly choked back to reality
with the smell of exhaust or
the honk of someone's car horn.

    It is easy to see you are in a dark place right now, LW.

    You have a place here, at RH to come in and seek comfort and support, ok?

    Things will get better, I promise:)

    Take care girl,

    5/5 Ingrid

    "tote" them in my face?
    I don't under stand that word means
    "to carry a heavy weight or load"
