On the outside,
I stand firm,
but on the inside,
I’m shaking like a leaf,
slowly losing my hold.

  1. Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and taking the time to read. I very much appreciate it. I like this poem. I can relate to “shaking like a leaf” on the inside, but instead of standing firm on the outside (even with effort), I think the shaky part of me shows at least a little. :o)
    I’m glad you find comfort and hopefully some joy in writing. Take care!

    1. Ah, thanks for that. I appreciate that you took the time to read it. I think as much as I’d like to say so, I shake a little on the outside as well. Writing is very important to me and it helps me get through my days. Take care as well.
