#4 of 365 – “above the grind”

“above the grind”

 

at forty four

she is unhappy,

exhausted

in the fight,

scratching

at the heavens

for some measure

of light.

her path is tangled,

thick with answers

that seem vague

and unkind,

and my love

is not enough

to raise her dreams

above the grind.
