Down

Ivanka Fear

Feet slipping out from under you

when you least expect it

slamming you onto your butt

leaving you in shock.

How did I get here?

you ask yourself

as life throws a sheet of black ice

smack in front of you

didn’t see that coming…

checking for broken bones

bruised ego denying

don’t let them see the tears

nothing else to do

smile and say you’re fine

kick life back to the curb

lift yourself up gingerly

shake yourself off

carry your broken self

forward
