Days feel heavy
Happy energy surrounds but
something is missing

The weight of each hour
Eyelids droop until work ends
freedom to close

Wonderful things
Taking their toll on everyday
someone save me

Each moment brings new opportunity
And with it fewer hours to myself
battery is low

Balancing good with necessary
Each day a new decision
money or rest

Both paths with rock faces and upward slopes
Both with bridges and flat ground
no right answer

My heart and head are at an impasse
And so we continue one day at a time
breathe in. breathe out. choose.
