Midst of the grief

Fighting the belief

Everything has its place

So must this pain

In my face

Pulling at me

With every single breath

Waking with tears

My own dreams

Perpetuating fears

Deep into grief

Asking questions rhetorically

Only God can answer me

Knees bend in pain

Screaming to remain sane

Replaying each scene

Was it meant to be me

Not accepting this destiny

Fire keeps growing in me

Afraid to sleep

Alone in this grief

Every grief opening

Every single time

I felt this pain

Appreciating lessons

Some told remain old

Expecting something different

Hard to bear this

Praying for something

Not even sure what yet

Buried in grief

Flowing through me

Essence of everything

Innocence was fleeting

Unable to protect me

Envied each day dream

Thinking I’d be free

I changed locations

Escaped reality

But it never left me
