Walking Song

By: Jenny Celli

Long list of the day, No matter how hard I try 

Hard to change my ways, No matter how hard I cry

Tired of the pain, All alone to die

I can’t stop this rain, Always safe inside

Don’t bother to ask

I can’t walk tonight, meet you there in the morning

Unto my soul sunrise, slowly dissipating

I can’t lift my feet up off the ground

Let me rest my head from this crown  

Don’t wait up, cause I can’t walk tonight

One step at a time, I hope I don’t fall

One breath in and out, please let me crawl

I can’t hold this weight, crumbling deep inside

Tired of the shame, guilt is on the rise

Don’t bother to ask

I can’t walk tonight, meet you there in the morning

Unto my soul sunrise, slowly dissipating

I can’t lift my feet up off the ground

Let me rest my head from this crown  

Don’t wait up, cause I can’t walk tonight


This song was written early 2020. A time where walking and doing simple task became hard and frustrating. This was such a blow to my ego. I had to release all expectations and drop everything that I once was, into something new. Quietly suffering with a smile; this is my life now.
