Overwhelmed 

Overwhelmed. 

It’s the perfect word to describe a feeling,

Without saying too much.

Some days are just like this.

When ‘Just keep swimming’ sounds hollow and unrealistic, 

And so unlike the perfect word above.

Because today actually feels like being buried or drowning beneath a huge mass

Struggling to breathe in hope and courage,

While exhaling all that is weighing you down.

And so, in an attempt to face these days, you paint yourself in warrior symbols and colours.

In hopes of warding off these never-ending days. 

And try to keep all that is wrong at bay.

But the more you push against it,

The more you fight it,

The more it overwhelms you.

And it succeeds, in the whelming of you, that is.

Sometimes the bravest thing you can do is to 

just 

give 

in
