Surrender, again

Surrender to life

Morning
feeling poised on the edge
wandering
watering plants
taking in nature
trying to find peace
instead
this feeling
I'm not facing
keep busy
look the other way
but here it comes
welling up inside
the grief
a few tender tears
a moment of remembering
and on with the day

still
if only I'd
slept last night
perhaps
I'd feel
more energized
more in touch
but really
I'd just be
doing more
and feeling less

being tired
does that to me
brings the emotions
back to the surface
the feeling of
being out of control
the need
to surrender
okay
I surrender
