bitter cold

you tell yourself
time and time again
that the cold will be
worth it


that all the hills you climb
make you stronger
in mind and body
and soul

but there are nights
when the fight is
too much
to bear

you grow weary
of the tears

hiding sorrow
after anger
after frustration

after all this time

making the stumble
and grind
seem like nothing

but hurt and shame

where you'd forget
your own name

for just a smile
