Struggling to Survive--a Poem

Updated on October 17, 2017

She is broken and hurting, just struggling to survive.

She is shattered, stained and falling apart, what happened to the love that keeps her alive?

Feeling lost and out of place,

Wishing, hoping, and needing a space.

I feel so helpless and so far behind

Wanting to cry I’m losing my mind.

I’ve worked so hard, fought through so much

Why do I still feel like I’m lost in the rush?

I want my own home

A place to call my very own.

I’m unsettled and worried

Everything’s busied and hurried

What if things don’t turn out right?

Will I ever sleep tonight?

I long for peace, something more

Have I over looked God’s open door?

I’m still so young, yet feel so aged

The stress and hardships of every day

I’m wearing thin and don’t think I can take much more

I just want to be loved and change the world.

My dreams are too big I will be let down

I don’t even know where to start to turn this around.

Hopeless and alone where do I turn

What if I crash and burn?

My head aches and my heart breaks

I don’t want to have to fake.

I just want to feel whole again

Find a new place to begin.

Enough changing and rearranging

Settling down and remaking

That’s where I want to be

A place to just be me to raise a family.
