I question myself, am I out of my depth?
Reflecting on self and trying to catch my breath
Life is frayed and I can’t seem to hold her
Life is dismayed and I can’t even tell her
Giving up is easier, just set me free
This small slice of life is too much for me
The familial affinity
The pressure and responsibility
The pleasure and fragility
I’m frightened, admittedly
Why did I think this?
It’s a blessing I witnessed
My mind is restless
I feel defenceless
The joy is endless
Author's note: This is my first attempt at an inverse poem and it's definitely a hard way to write one. This is a fictional person of course, and don't ask me why I chose such a topic for this because I have no idea; I wrote the first two lines intended for it to be a normal poem (not for the challenge), and then the idea for this hit me, so I went with it. Hope it worked out.
Very well written. Keep up the good work!
