Stretched in the Darkness



My cable seems to be at breaking point again; but I am strong.

I can take a little more weight,

Even though I am running out of places to tie the wire,

Perhaps one more time.


However, like the swan, I appear strong and smooth,

Holding up what needs holding,

Seemingly indestructible and able to embrace forever,

To all those around me.


Such is the strength given to me to prevail … for one more day.
