Still Trying

Hung in your last breath
Anticipation of the next
The tightness in your chest
Suspense of a dawning day
We surmise the sun will shine
Rain will occasionally pour
Nothing guaranteed
All taken easily
Until we have no interest
Care not about the weather
Don’t wish to leave our bed
No matter the brilliant light
From the solar burning orb
We are shrouded in a fog
Dark polluted clouds
Of miserable thought
The suffocating surround
We find ourselves in
Until we stop trying so hard
For that following breath
