I love my family
but I live on the edge of sanity
Stress invades my every groove
Pushing harder and harder
Move! Move!
At almost every second my internal soul screams help,
yet I chose this path in life who can help me see it thru?
My love, my heart and soul, fails to get me at times so how can I hope…
I hope I can survive this,
yet I worry what will my kids think,
will they hate me for my moodiness and lack of consistency?
or will they understand the demon I fought,
my “jihad of the nafs”
