I’m so lonely. I’m so lost. Without a friend. Without direction. My tears keep falling. No one sees. No change in sight. No company to speed the journey. Days rolling by. Everyone leaves. Some return…for a little while. No appreciation. No thank yous. Underpaid. Under worked. Running from stress. Fighting against hopelessness. Longing for the end. The pinprick of light. Is there something better? Is it worth the fight? How long must I wait? Sitting on the edge of despair. When will it all be over? When will it all be worth it? When will I look back and say, “It wasn’t that bad”?
