Weight of the World

I feel it crushing my heart
Soul
Drive
Purpose

Paralyzed I lay in bed
Dull
Sad
Aching

I decided to coast this past week
Regret
Guilt
Fearing

I didn’t stretch my limits
Inward
Alone
Confining

I drank too much
Tears
Pride
Yearning

I raised my voice too high
Confused
Anxious
Angry

I gave to my clients
Hope
Warmth
Understanding
Direction

I gave to my girls
Food
Shelter
Love
Listening
Comfort
Guidance
Validation
Apologies
Boundaries
Discipline

I gave to my friends
Encouragement
Wit
Humor
Heart
Empathy

I gave to my husband
Moodiness
Love
Affection
Vulnerability
Worry

I gave to myself too much criticism compared to what I gave others.

I gave my all this week, even if it was less than ideal.
