I can’t quite say
how I feel today
in a way
that makes any sense

the words won’t flow
don’t know where to go
to show
what’s wound and tense

maybe I need
to stop feeding the seed
which leads
to angst and doubt

and start feeding my soul
filling the hole
with soil
in which love can sprout

let my roots run deep
allow love to seep
and keep
negativity at bay

soak in the light
stand tall in the night
and fight
for one more day
