Struggle

I look to the sky and see no answers
I listen to the wind and hear no songs
I search for my soul and it all seems empty
Someone please help me go on.

I look to the fields and see no flowers
I walk through meadows and can’t smell the grass
I cry out to my parents who are no longer near me
Someone please help me go on.

I walk with my troubles and pray someone sees me
I carry a weight that seems impossible to hold
I wake in the morning and search through the news
Please anybody help me go on.
