This anxiety is overwhelming- it takes over their minutes – it will take over their hours if allowed- it will even erase full days.
They turn their cheek every chance they get- but they know it’s there lurking around the corner and now it has brought fear along too! It has brought fear because they know it’s around that corner and they know it’s going to be a fight.
It won’t win. But neither will they.
They will fight to the point of exhaustion they will even fight until tears – the bell will ring, and their round will be over.
They will lay their head down to try and sleep- arguing it can’t take their night.
They will exhale for the belief that they may – they just may have a chance of rest- until the morning- when they will face each other again.
