Life After

I'm heavy hearted,
feeling crushed
from the weight
of my worries.


I'm wearing thin,
stretched beyond
what I can take
by daily stresses.


There's nothing left
of this broken soul;
my spirit has faded
through these trials. 


Becoming dead inside,
I need to believe
there will be life
after falling apart.
