All These Days in a Cookie Jar – Written Monday 18th January 2021 (Aged 45)

All These Days in a Cookie Jar

what if,
i would like to collapse
or withdraw –
from the weightlifting competition

what if,
i am scared –
of being the one
when i am barely one
especially when my eyes seem bust

what if,
i completely collapse
and tactfully withdraw –
from the league tables –
of upfront resilience
where would i go then?
with my shoulders in pieces
and knees,
hugging the flat earth

what if,
i would like to let go
and see where the wind takes me
all these days in a cookie jar
i hope this life never finally breaks me
