the sadness

some days

I cannot

keep back

the sadness

at my core

it wants to

possess me

smother me

undermine me

take happiness

and turn it dark

with fear

self-doubt

self-revulsion

self-condemnation

when I am

strong

when I have

the power

the energy

I fight back

do not give in

but some days

I have no strength

all I have

is tears

I like first person narratives.
