cookie cutter days

some days she gets up slowly
but every day she arises
aware of possibilities
on the heels of God’s sunrises

mornings after nightmares
when she finds it hard to talk
dreich weather days
when it hurts her to walk

bein’ locked down hasn’t helped
no matter how hard she tries
she feels helpless in the face of
angry unbelievers’ cries

so often she is tired
yet she soldiers on
for the many people who love her
for the sight of one more dawn
