get up

endless attempts up an impossible hill

pushing too hard, I collapsed again

mistaken, not in the pursuit

but in thinking it would end differently

when you spend so much time

worrying about saying the wrong thing

trying too hard

and being who you think you should be

be you, unapologetically you

and understanding that the fall

isn’t permanent

as long as you get up
