Beautiful Disaster

We Endure

Slowly, slowly
One day at a time
We endure
Rush hour traffic and
Being the last one standing
We endure
Fake smiles and
Mustard on our favorite shirt
We endure
10 pairs of eyes
Watching you pass by alone
We endure
Two hours in the freezing cold
We endure
Stubbed toes and
Three essays due before five pm
We endure
Sleeping alone and
Mosquito bites
We endure
Harsh words and
Harsher silences
We endure
Broken elevators and
Lentil beans
We endure
Break ups and
Meltdowns
We endure
Annoying coworkers and
Nagging family
We endure
Foods touching and
Messy rooms
We endure
Days that seem
Like they will never end and
Days that end too quickly
We endure
Heartache and
Headaches
We endure
Waking up late and
All-nighters
We endure
Dogs barking at midnight and
Neighbors with loud music
We endure
Death and
Loss
We endure
Degradations and
Slurs
We endure
Dirty laundry
And spilled drinks
We endure
Three am calls
We endure
Losing battles and
Verbal abuse
We endure
Late night fire drills
We endure
Slamming doors and
Smoke clouds
We endure
Brokenness and
Injustice
Hoping that
One day
It will all be worth it
But until thenů
We endure
