is daunting.
Unnerving. Dispiriting.
Not knowing where?

Strength to go on.
Where is it?
How did you find it?

...not to lose it.
Struggling to hold on
Lest your hopes
fizzle before your eyes.

Am I?
... at the wrong goal?
..for what is not mine?

But how..
...will I know?

With every step forward..
...the goal seems even further away.
Disappearing into the thin air

Tomorrow is daunting.

Nice poem.

Is this about a dying relationship?

And are you the blogger formerly known as 'Brokeass'?

Ahh, Brokeass, so this is your new home? Been away for a minute...let me update my blogroll.

Tomorrow can be daunting...I feeling you on that. Focusing on just 'now' is easier said than done but i see no other option.

I agree with repressed one.. we are say to focus on now but it is an act that has to be mastered and I have done that. Makes life so much easier.
