Can you face
A life of disgrace
Lost connection to things real
No longer know what to feel

Crowing like I know
Inside feeling low
A charade not forever
Need ballast anchor tether

Here crying inside
Deny sadness with false pride
Heavy heart
Time for new start

Circle of life a wheel
Opportunity to sense feel
Part of journey rise from muck
Extracted from being stuck

One thing certain in life
You’ll be tested by the strife
No question sadness difficulty
Can your answer with resiliency

When down use your head
Chose life not the bed
Sad when not feeling great
Reward patience without hate

When fearful and desperate what’s your self-talk?

Can you embrace your state as a learning for next time?
