The Over/Under



Overwhelmed and underfunded.

Overextended and underutilized.

Overanxious and underpressure.

Over-doing-it while unprepared.

Out of options, unprotected.

Regressed, repressed, depressed, and under duress.

Lost and lonely, feeling pathetic.

Answers unfound, rhetoric received.

Crossing lines, finding bottom.

Grasping for straws, gasping for breath.

Reaching for others, leaving one's head.

Kindness, sharing, apathy.

Impressed, found, protected.

Prepared for anything, feeling the love.

Anxious for tomorrow, living for today.

Extending a hand, pressing palms.

Overjoyed, understanding.

Faithful, forgiven, fortunate.

Amen.
