My Life Collapsed
by Cheryl Scheir

My life collapsed three times

 

Before 

Nothing was hard,

that is, 

Nothing that I thought was hard

was hard

 

The first time

I was no good to anyone

The second time

I had no clue

The third time

there was plenty to do 

but

no time to do it

 

The good thing is, 

This time

is informed

by the others

I’m doing

but

I couldn’t have done

without

before
