Peri Meno What?

This hormonal mess

Grips me, sapping whatever

Energy I have into nothingness.

The emotional hills are

So much steeper

That I find it hard to

Know what I feel at

Any given moment.

Each day presents

New challenges.

Unlike adolescence,

Where our bodies are

Still somewhat shiny and new,

The mileage at perimenopause is

Past the warranty.

Through sheer force of will

I push forward,

Day by day,

Hour by hour,

To show up, even if

I have to fake it,

And put a smile on

My face.
