There is very little written about energy sappers

Those people and things and moments

Which steal the good life from you

Absolute thieves of joy and happiness

They make life unbearable and unlivable

The end seems preferable over them.

You want to avoid them on your way

But they just land up in front of you

Or you feel entrapped suddenly

Sometimes you embrace them

through gritted teeth and tired mind

sometimes you replenish your reserve

by doing something else

but as time passes, the list of sappers

Grows faster than the refuellers

how do we manage in that case

there is no end in sight

a quarter more or maybe even less
