at the risk of putting too much "out here"

words fail
emotions overwhelm
pain swirling, tainting perception
even small hugs from wonderful children
though well-intended
increase anxiety and lower tolerance
just not fair

I will do what I can do
yet beat myself up for how little that is
shove myself past reason to meet others expectations
I continue to reach for someone else’s definition of worth
Rather than resting in what is.
Not okay
but just what is

words seem inadequate
emotions impossible to explain
outside of whimpers
which some just plain can't hear
some can
some do
keeping the positives in perspective is tough
and necessary

for today, the word is rest
