Pushing herself to the limits
She’s functioning but not living.
Coffee, faith, and determination
is what gets her through each day.
Seams are so close to busting
And all her tears will come tumbling out
She’s holding it together by the barest of threads
But she gets through each day.
She’s so close
close to her breaking point
so close to throwing in the towel
But she forces a smile on her face
and she makes it through the day.
So many depend on her
family, friends, work
She tries her best and gives her all
but she’s barely making it through the day.
Sleep, she longs for sleep
Just to put the day behind her
Because tomorrow it starts over again
And she’ll push through another day.
