Kit Kelen #390 - trying to let that be my comfort

trying to let that be my comfort

I'm just trying to roll with the punches

trying to keep my shirt on
keep my hair on
keep my pants on
keep abreast
head down
tail up

trying to keep up my end of the bargain
trying to keep my nose clean

up and at em
(if I'm able)

I'm just trying thing at a time
get it all off my chest
I think I can
I think I can

I'm trying to get the measure

roll with the punches
stay off the ropes
trying to breathe with my head between
the foot pressing down and the mat

trying for a bit of a bounce

trying not to choke on the fumes
or bile of spite

trying to get my question heard

I'm trying to shift my weight along
I'm pushing the shit uphill
just sayin

against all the odds
I'm trying to press on

everyone has days like this
if I'm lucky my last day will be so

I know there's nothing – not a thing – at the end
but the tunnel is lighted this way


  1. Well... it didn't comfort me that much! But I like it anyway!

  2. there should be a kind of pill this could advertise
