Red Amazon Danbo on Brown Wooden Surface

Today I broke down
Today the screeching breaks on earth seemed loudest
today the distance between me and my loved ones seemed widest
today I broke down

A news from home, not so fine
a loved one didn’t make it to the other side
her family alone with tears unwiped
her life uncelebrated with memories uncoiled
So today I broke down
in the shadows of blaring silence and deep despondency

Today Mother Earth seems brutish
Today my faith feels weakest
so today I mourn
I cry
I break down

Tomorrow, maybe my belief will resurrect
My strength, be redefined
My will to carry on, be redeemed
Tomorrow I will do the difficult
but today it seems impossible
so today…..I break down!
