Poem: "Tough All Over (Sometimes)" by James Kenneth Blaylock

Tough All Over (Sometimes)
james kenneth blaylock, 9-9-23

why, is it normalized to be
ashamed about begging…

because if someone can
come to terms with pride

than that’s half the battle,
or so, one might imagine

yet, here we are afraid to
admit we need anything

in socialized society it’s
appalling to apologize

but things are tough
all over, sometimes
