NOTE: I thought about labeling this poetry, but I couldn’t decide.
All too often, I am alone with myself and my thoughts.
I can’t unload on friends and family every time.
I have to bear some of the load too!
But, I don’t do well unless I am sharing something with someone.
The pain becomes too bearable to handle otherwise.
Sometimes, I can distract myself with hobbies and with contacting a friend.
Other times, I would do good to leave the house.
But, I don’t. I stay put. Unless there’s an appointment of some kind.
How sad is that?
It’s not that I am afraid to go out, it’s that I don’t have the energy!
A song that’s sung all too often, I know…
Whatever it takes though, to get by in life, is what I will do!
It’s not over until I take my last breath. At which point it will be done.
Until then, it’s sharing my woes with all of you good people. And, trying to find better ways to cope.
