A personal piece . . .

Tough Times

It seems like it never stops
keeps on coming
and coming
and coming
and coming
some more ...
It comes at you like fire balls
ready to burn you
leave an ever constant reminding scar
quick to come
yet slowly it heals
Always with it
that Perfect timing

Sometimes it keeps me wondering
if it will let me catch my breath
find firmer ground
the answer quickly reveals
as another consistent
attach chases me
they say what doesn't kill you,
only makes you stronger
but what if it leaves you raw
with no time to recover
so what then
try me
with a better cliche
