Holding It Together

Posted January 16, 2014 & filed under Notebook.

It’s January and that’s not a good month for me
My family always struggles in January
Bills pile up, we usually have to change apartments
My brother needs a jacket, my mom has got the flu
It’s January and that’s not a good month for me
I have a hard time going back to school
so I start low to the ground and put my head down,
I keep moving forward, holding it together
as best I can.
