Everything I can Truly Depend on Has Batteries

Power is so unpredictable
It often leaves me at the worst moments
Weak and lifeless
Unable to move
Or get out of bed
Makes me feel like someone's tripped over me
And pulled me out
Absentmindedly leaving me
Laying on the floor
Trying to collect my scattered thoughts
As they roll away from me towards the walls
I am forced to slowly recharge myself
Minimize my load
To only the basics
Shut down all but necessary
Parts of me
Trying once again to regain my step
And maybe
Not depend
so much
On being plugged in
