#325 of 365 – “weary”



I am where I am today

out back behind my thoughts

collapsed inside a respite

from this world’s dark juggernauts

I am tired, they rush over me

and flatten my resolve

make me question our ability

to learn and to evolve

my hope is weary

wants to fold into a tiny bitter heap

curl up beneath humanity

and cry itself to sleep
