Rise – A Quadrille

Unable to rise above
feelings of despair
Dragging me down
on this road to nowhere  
Strength and bravery
failing me once more
eyes blinded
as I crawl on the floor 
Help me please
as you are wise
Lift me up
So, I may rise

      A sincere and desperate plea. The last lines are hopeful…with so many people in this world, you would think there should be enough help for all of us.

        One would think so Mish. Well, I believe there are, but sadly many don’t care 😢

    Asking for help so one may rise, is a good one Christine. May both the giver and taker become even stronger.
