Running Out

The truth is
 
I am easily overwhelmed
Easily hurt beyond repair
 
I carry so many scars
So many bruises
That if you look closely
You will see 
I am merely 
Limping along
 
Some days 
I just want
To shut it all down
 
Be that crazy lady
With a hundred cats
Who one day 
Just stopped talking
 
It takes so much energy
To keep going
When stopping would be
Such a blessed relief
 
I am told I am loved
Some days
I even feel loved
 
But most days
It requires faith
To believe in something
I don’t actually feel
Faith requires energy
 
The truth is
 
I am running out
Of energy
Of faith
Of belief
Of heart
