Energy flees, disappointment swells
Things left undone stay heavy on my mind
Cancelling plans and feeling reduced to a slob on a sofa
I try turn thoughts to what I can do, not ‘can-not’
But how many times now have I let people down?
How many plans have had to change?
When will it end?
Half glass turns to nothing left at all
Yet when I have half I’m not satisfied
I try push for more and end up losing all I had before
Balance is key but who when given a little
Of the taste of really living would not try grasp hold?
How many times will I push too far?
When will I learn?
