Frailty

“Fragile” – Muntinlupa, 30 May 2015

feeling fragile

at the

moment;

shoulders stiff

and stooped,

bent by

bowed by

the weight

of the

world.

 

i feel

weariness

sluggishly

crawling through

my system:

miasmic,

depressing,

disheartening;

leaving me

wretched,

desolate,

shattered.

 

how much

more

can i

take;

how much

more

need i

stand

ere i

fall apart

unravel entirely?

 

feeling weary

boding ill

my energy

all spent –

oh to

rest

and to

sleep

dreamlessly!

 

oh to

awaken

in one piece

made whole

once more

by

dream king’s

grace.
