& we try,
until the tears start to threated
& the heart starts to unravel
& this castle we call home
becomes nothing more than mere walls.

& the hurt will linger,
in the depths of what you wanted
in the realization
that comes day after day;
that you tried-
but there’s no controlling life.

Then we try again,
with a gaze that knows better
& failure no longer leaves us baffled
& we find a new comfort in ourselves
that we never knew we needed before.

Then try one more time
& try again,
until you reach that dream
that has kept you alive-
that’s all there is
to this thing called life.
