Wondering where I get this strength

something keeps me


from falling


and my feet


are sunken in


I wonder if


it hides behind


the clouds


this strength


that I often


feel when


I feel the pull


to go down

I have a friend that said to me, mind you he has always gotten what he wanted, "I don't know how you do it, if I had to go through all the things you had to, I'd kill my self!" I told him that "what you see me going through is nothing compared to what I have already been through. We can not go through any more because we think we can't. I do what I know I have to do, and do not think about if I can't, because by the time I think about how hard it is it is already over. It is like reading, you look at a book and think you can't read all of it, me I read it and then think about how long it was." I think you are the same way Leesah. Thank you for the reminder. Tyrone.

I think that it comes from everywhere, inside and behind the clouds, and the clouds themselves.
You've got it for sure.
