Given up on life

Imbued with self-pity, weak

Tear stained pillow case

Struggling to stay positive

Please God, help me help myself

    Thanks, those words sure make sense of the title, but very sad.
    All the best for 2017.

    Oh wow…the pleading, the desperation, it all comes through so well…in a heartbreaking way.
