burnt away

are the days when I felt so strong and able to go on no matter what.

Now the struggle to do what I need to do at the speed that will help me get it done comes and goes.

I feel like I have the ability to do more but the drive to do it isn’t as strong willed as it used to be and the desire to prove myself is just not there.

For I know I can do it but the fact that you try to man hand me get us no where and yet you still think your way will get us far.

But your way is like a burnt leaf nothing good comes from dry leaves unless you need them for a fire in the woods.

I know it will all come down in the end but will you see it coming because you never seem focus or aware of your surroundings.
