Feeling the Fears

For the women in my life that keep on…

   Feeling the Fears

She wonders how she can go on
Fighting all the little demons

In her body
Wasn’t ready

For this awful test of courage
The fatigue and pain discourage

Mighty spirits
Grown to fear it

But courage’s not feeling no fears
It’s going on despite the tears

That cloud the eye
Wiping them dry

She picks herself up and strides forth
Not knowing how, only of course

For the loved ones
She can’t be done

So she stands yet another day
And will yet again come what may

Until she mends
Or til the end
