Rest

Feeling the need

To unplug

From it all

And disappear

For just a bit-

Long enough

To find myself

Again.

The daily fights

And power struggles,

Have left me

Drained

And lifeless,

Wondering

Why.

I need a rest

And to quiet

The voices

Of disagreement

And discontent.

It’s time

To drink in

The happiness

That I have

Had to let go of

In order

To hold my sword

And my shield.

My arms are tired

And the battle is

Too long

To hold

My attention

Any longer.
