Please don’t break me, Dear God.
I cannot endure another blow.
I’ve been resilient in the debacles,
I have survived it all.
I did not perish
Though, the walls of my heart are now paper thin.
I outlived the cancer and the death of my dearest.
Outsiders proclaim my strength;
However I am feverishly weak.

Knowing it hasn’t quite bottomed out,
There could be more.
Faith and faculty tried.
Entering an unknown domain
Where there is still further to go.
There needn’t be more pain.
Swallowing more will impact my soul.

Continued existence depends on stillness.
I need stillness for my soul.
