i cannot get the words out
the things i want to say
the worries, the fears, the doubts
that stay with me all day
the aches, soreness, and pains
that will not go away.
every time i see some gains,
they seem to fade away
so it goes, with pains that don't leave
and gains that never stay
as i stare with wonder at this tease...
why bother anyway?


  1. They seem to fade away, but they don't. You're doing better than ever before so stop lying to yourself.

  2. Unfortunately this is a common problem and according to Rabbi Tatz in both Living Inspired and his guide for Teenagers it is to be expected as what looks like set backs is the way Hashem helps us internalize our last set of achievements. Please see there for a better understanding.

    Kol Tuv,

  3. :-(. You are in my thoughts.

  4. The gains are real no matter what happens afterward. I will keep saying it till you are able to believe it!

    Still proud of you,
    Happy 7!
