I sensed a bit of weakness in her
As she pushed her glasses up
And continued on about her day.
Things loom inside of her
People never see, or ask about
Yet it always gets in her way.
Tells me she feels suffocated
By a long and tedious life
That definitely did not go according to plan.
The secret weapon is her faith
She holds it very close to her heart
Her God is more powerful than man.
I’ve seen her at her very best
On a day when everything is right
Her soul opens and sings.
Today is not her best day
We all must forgive her for that
It isn’t always life, it is just ‘some things.’
