The Silent Worrior

 

She sat
for what seemed like forever,
flat on the floor
with her back against the wall.

Her hands ached,
her shoulders were tight,
her legs were numb,
her feet were swollen.

Her spirit willed her to move
but her body resisted.
Life for her has never been easy
and this was no different.

Her journey ahead
triggered a sense of panic.
Her chest tightened,
her stomach was in knots.

She was so tired
of the endless struggle.
She wanted it all to stop
but quitting was not an option.

The tears filled her eyes
as she prayed for strength.
She has learned very well
to push through the pain.

One day things will get better…
Her faith is strong!
She believes there’s a reason
for everything, even this!
