Really, Really Trying

Sisyphus 3It is so easy to say:
Look on the positives you have
It isn’t that hard to list them
They have names,
And they surround you, in a variety of ways
So you try
And you try
And you really, really try
 
Trying is working at it
Trying is not giving up
But trying is not always succeeding
And then you hear:
Be patient
It takes time
And you struggle to breathe through it
You struggle to focus on what is good in your life
You struggle to let go the crap of the past
So you try
And you try
And you really, really try
 
Love comes at  you from a number of sources
Words of support
Words of comfort
Knowing you’re cared for
Needed and wanted by some
Admired and cherished
So you try
And you try
And you really, really try
 
You’re pushing that rock up that hill
And it roll down on you
And you’re pushing that rock up that hill
And it may still roll down on you
And you push
And it rolls
And you pray it won’t roll down on you anymore
And you try not to let it roll down
And you try really hard not to let it roll down
And you really, really try

  1. With some tweaking these would make great song lyrics!! “Trying is not giving up”. And not giving up is the only way to win a battle, any battle. 🙂

  2. And this is when trying is everything……As Dory says, “just keep swimming” (Finding Nemo)
