Xhaustion – A to Z Challenge

A to Z Challenge, letter: X

Xhaustion

I loathe the letter X, you can’t find many words that begin with that letter. I picked (e)xhaustion, because this week has been a bit hectic for me, and I’m going through some personal problems. However, I am hopeful that the storm will pass :). What’s the best way to deal with (e)xhaustion? It depends on what you like and what your body tells you. Sometimes, I feel like sleeping for 14 hours straight, and I let myself do it, and there are times when a 6-hour sleep will do for me. Another way is to sit, relax, and drink a cup of warm tea. I find it that helps when I’m not sleepy, but I’m tired; chamomile and peppermint tea do the trick. I think comedies can also help you go to bed with a smile on your face. I have to admit, sometimes I laugh in my sleep when I remember funny moments.

On a side note, I can’t believe the A to Z challenge is coming to an end! Although, I am (e)xhausted from writing specific topics, it has been a great way to get me to sit and write :).

Poem: Emotional Distress

On the edge of a precipice

I hold on to the most precious

struggling to bind the pieces

it is exhausting

it is emotionally tiring.

For how long can I hold on

will I ever regain hope?

~

I cling onto the edge 

watching the rocks of my emotional state 

fall down the cliff

splashing in the water

failing miserably to lift me up

~

As the rocks fall, my pockets fill with distress

it’s time to let go they say

I can’t

I still am hopeful 

but don’t be, maybe it won’t get better

I’m not strong

I’m meant to fail.

~

Awake I face reality

Asleep I chase my dreams

But you can make a switch

there is hope

no there is not

I can’t put together my broken pieces anymore.

~

it’s a sonet of painful tones

an emotional mountain of despair

on my shoulders

and for what?

for hope, you say

my flask has almost none.

~

It’s not over

the amount is not significant

it can flourish and you can regain yourself

try, for yourself. 

~

Confront your reality

battle the sorrows

chase your dreams

win back your life

amend your heart

believe again.
