The Silent Struggle @tysm_poetry

Updated: Apr 7

My mind is racing,

veering towards thoughts I can’t convey

I hold them very dearly

these things I cannot say.

I do not think you realize

how much my heart does weigh

and you will never empathize

with debts I must repay.

Go and buy yourself a yacht

dock on a tranquil bay

never knowing life is not

served on a silver tray.


My view is far from perfect,

quite often cold and gray —

some days do not seem worth it

and I just want to lay.

Quiet in confinement

is where I wish to stay

seeking soul alignment

for hours here I pray.

I’ll take a little nap or two

and maybe smoke a jay

“Girl, no matter what you do,

your tattered ends will fray.”


I hear that tiny voice inside

and yes it’s true they may

but I will find the strength to rise

and shine another day.

A small bio about you: I’m T.Y.S.M, a bit left of center. My name I created to pay homage to the warmth and light of the rare and valuable magic that is gratitude. The most extraordinary thing about me is my wife, who has shown me there is nothing true love cannot overcome
