Day in, Day out (National Poetry Writing Month 2016 #9)   Leave a comment

Day in, day out
You bash your head against the wall
Heart filled with doubt
“Is it worth trying at all?”

(But still)

Day in, day out
You bash your head until it breaks
Heart filled with doubt
The panic in your mind awakes

(Yet still)

Day in, day out
You bash your head until you bleed
Heart filled with doubt
No rescue in your time of need

(No will)

Day in, day out
You bash your head, about to die
Heart filled with doubt
You no longer want to try

(Until)

Day in, day out
You raise your head up to the light
Heart still with doubt
“Did I really win this fight?”

(You will)

Day in, day out
You raise your head up, full of pride
Heart freed from doubt
You made it through.
You survived.
