I can’t cope.
Anxious about what could be,
If I could,
I’d hide away.
My quivering body, threatens
collapse from a weight I can’t bare.
Searching for anything to cling to
Anything to give me hope.
I bend my back,
Roll my shoulders,
Stiff, exhausted, from the burden.
Swiftly bouncing from thing to thing.
I throw myself into any endeavor,
A subterfuge from the main endeavor
