30 Poems in 30 Days #21 – I Don’t Understand

I try my best
Really I do
But sometimes I can’t fix it all
I can’t prevent all the falls

I perceive more than you know
Assess every moment more than you are able to
Each breath slows
To a painful pace

But it is never enough
There is a limit to my abilities
For I am no god
Though I would like to think I can be

Control is not easily released
Acceptance is not easily found
That is the paved road
We walk hand in hand

No end in sight
The horizon waits
Becoming for us to melt it into it
At the end of our lives
