Poem: Going the Distance

Life was tough
So many challenges
Just getting back on my feet again
Fighting life head on
Lost my dad, got up and fought again
Lost my mom, got up, bruised,
and struggled to gain my footing
Lost my marriage…got up all alone
Faced life’s challenges on my own
And then lost my only child
Was going for the ninth round
Got that knock out blow
To the heart
I just didn’t know
Thought I could go the distance
After losing my dad, my mom, and my husband
Thought I could make it
Then dealt that fatal blow
When I lost my daughter
Lost my life
