Weary and lonely

Yet wanting to be alone,

Itching to fly

But energy gone,

Restless for no reason,

Excitement and dread

Quarreling, Sigh

I try again to clear my head


I know this lead

Is not mine to carry,

Don’t give in.

I tarry at the hurdle,


Breathe in the Sweet Pea Sun

Win back the day.


Comments on: "Hurdle" (18)

  1. Victory can be as sweet and unfolding as a delicate, scent breathed sweet pea but as it grew to be an embodiment of fragile perfection even for only a few moments in the sun, wasn’t that push and stretch for life as miraculous as the soul in weariness reaching out in thirsty prayer?

  2. I love the idea of winning the day. All of us can win because the challenge is not between all of us but with one self. Here’s to winning πŸ™‚

  3. Hey! If going over the hurdle isn’t gonna happen, go around that sucker! A nice write, but it sounds as though you need a good cheering up. The following poem may, or may not, do that! Cheers, my friend!
