Rough Patch


At times this feeling, feels like it is too much.

Something that can never be mastered.

Yet, I have been through this before

in other shapes and other forms,

and I have gotten through it.

It is a rough patch,

just that,

and it will not

and it does not define the relationship I have

with life and with myself.

And by that, I mean the real me;

sensitive, authentic and genuine,

the determined me,

determined to be me.
