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

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

In the despair, a plea for help. Hopefully, someone will hear.
Too true Merril 🙂💕
Despair captured in words. Time to face the wind. You are stronger than you know.

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 😢
