Stitch by stitch

If I drop one stitch, I don’t worry

But when one by one my clumsy fingers

Drop many stitches in a row, there is nothing left to show

All my hard work, unraveling in bits and pieces

Just like when I let life’s challenges overwhelm me

And one by one the strands holding it together snap

I am afraid to look at the destruction around me

I feel like it’s time to give up, trash the whole project

But my inherent stubbornness stands in my way

Stops me from even thinking of giving up in life or my efforts

And I am still here, still standing and fighting my way

Because of this trait of mine that doesn’t let me give up


Tuesday writing prompt; use the theme of unraveling in a piece of writing
