A Woman Fades Away

It’s not possible

She tries

But it’s not possible.

She has to be everything to everyone at all times.

She must be everywhere

Know everything there is to know

Succeed in all of her enterprises.

She must work her magic and make it look effortless.

It doesn’t matter

if she feels like she is fading away.

It doesn’t matter

if she vanishes

disappears in a sea of tasks and duties.

She cannot crumble

She cannot let anyone know it hurts.

It is not possible

but she alters reality

and makes it happen.

She fades away

But she makes it happen for everybody else still.
