resisting my fragility

everyday forging a metal exterior
resisting my fragility
i wake and shake the day before last
hoping ive learned this time
something lasting
giving all i had to give yesterday
i reach for more
inside myself
what can i give today
when can i receive
i throw myself into the wind
hoping hands will catch me
those hands that took my heart
without earning it
the heart i give everyday
never knowing if it's enough
but it will have to do for now
today in this day
i will forget yesterday
i will not let it poke through
to seep through my moments
today i will be free of thought
and let the heart i threw to the wind
fall where it may
i build up my strength
and never let go of my eternal fragility
