Shine A Light This Way

Asking for help is hard

Admitting I need a hand

Gets easily caught in my throat

People tell me I am strong

Then why do I feel so weak

The day can turn in the blink of an eye

Leaving me afraid of my shadow

Fear overwhelming me

And I am left searching

The small list of friends I have

And who I think can assist me

From letting the darkness take over

Will you give of your time today

Or am I as alone as I feel
