I have lost my ambition
My motivation is gone
I’ve got nothing left
So thoroughly exhausted
I need to find a reason
To continue on this path
It seems so endless
With no hope in sight
Will you help me
Stand by me
Give me your hand
Guide me along
Because I feel so


Written for Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (FOWC) – ambition

  1. Well done, Leigha. That poem is so evocative. I’m sure many, many people can relate to that feeling at one time or another. If this was written from your own experience, I hope you know that you are not alone. ❤️

    1. Thanks! I have a good support group, it just is hard to cope on some of those bad nights at Dad’s when the dementia takes hold. I can’t even begin to imagine what it feels like for him.
