marred

i lost my strength
when i lost my ambition
pulling myself forward
on leftover guilt
to get to a nominal goal

can you raise me
wherever it is i land
to my former self
whoever they were
before all this

change can happen
in and around us
but we always revert
blood burns anew
back to bones

have my teeth sharpened
gnawing on prosperity
mascarading as happiness
breaking down
to heal me

give me more time
to collect the tides
that bring in hope
encrypted in faces
waiting for answers

until i succeed
to resolve uncertainty
to rectify old mistakes
to conquer current fears
i continue forward
