Daily poetry, daily prompt

First Daily Prompt

I keep drowning in life; the waves keep knocking me down, I’m grasping for a breath, and all I can do now is chuckle.

My toddler screams if my attention is somewhere other than him for a minute; another human is handcuffed to me with no chance of a key to break free; my ears ring with cries, and all I can do now is chuckle.

I’m broke, exhausted, lost, alone, faded, numb, stuck, and all I can do now is chuckle.

I want to give up, I want to crawl into a hole, I want to hibernate for days, I want to smile, I want to experience happiness, I want to see the light again, but all I can do now is chuckle.
