Backbone Burnout

” You’re not going to be able to help everyone. You need to know this.”
” I know this. I do. But I don’t know what I’m meant to do knowing this. Stop trying?”

***

Days when your head
Is too heavy for your backbone
So you need a shoulder

Just to exhale
Tired.
Can’t.
Go-
On.

While hands stroke your hair
Like tomorrow
Will be another day
Like tomorrow
Will not
be the same.
Like tomorrow
Your backbone
Will carry your head
Again
