Pleading

Breathe in,

Sigh,

Bite your lip,

Don’t cry.

What goes up, Must come down,

But this game we play

keeps spinning around.

I just want to fall,

Down to my knees,

Pleading to God,

Repeating “Please”,

Stop the pain,

Stop the sorrow,

Remind me that

There’s always tomorrow.

Someday, Somehow,

I will grow strong,

Hold my head high

And Keep moving along.

But sometimes I fall again,

Back on my knees,

Pleading to God,

Repeating “Please”.
