May I sit for a bit and rest?
My mind is full of confusion
Cold and weary from time
Consumed by weight
My core is weak from giving
I’ve been sucked dry, they fed
Lay my head down on soft thoughts
Stretch out my limbs to dry
My bones need but a long minute
Let me learn to smile within, again
Be my friend, let me be?
I’ll be ready once I rest … rest … rest …
