Please Eat

The thing is
That I can’t.
You think I should.
You think I can.
But I can’t.
I don’t know if I want to…
You use logic to persuade me
Alluding to futures that I can’t imagine,
That I’m scared of,
That could be full of failure.
You tell me that I can
Because I’m strong.
But I don’t, because
I’m stronger than you think.
I will…
One day.
But for now, I simply can’t.

    It is hard when we are afraid but hopefully someday we can look back and realize our fears were bigger in our imagination than in reality. That’s usually the way it is, anyway. Great poem!

    When you are really ready, you will. For now be kind to yourself.
