Another Day


As the days pass

I think about my life

I sit around and wait

For the spark in my veins


I work, I pray, I plan in dismay

I pretend to be happy and hope not to get caught

Filled with doubt and emptiness,

More things were bought


The memories mean nothing

Time is an illusion

No one is here

Is this my conclusion?


Today is my birthday

I feel sad and inept

I'm confused and in pain

Because this I can't accept


Someone please help me

I'm crying for aid

Is that even possible?

Or do I just need to help myself?


I don't know what I want

Can I even be happy?

But how do I get there

when the climb seems so rocky


God, are you there?

I'm tired of this stress

Can you please help me?

I'm becoming depressed


I guess I will wait

Not sure for how long

My body is exhausted

And my soul is losing hope.

Much love,


Carla
