Someone

I don’t need someone

to tell me where

I’ve gone wrong,

I just have to

look in the mirror

all day long.

No one has to say

I think you

have made a mistake,

there is only so

much criticism

I can take,

before it

overwhelms me

to leave me broken,

alone on the floor

with the sickening

sensation of choking.

I don’t need someone

to tell me that

it will be alright.

I just have to look

in the mirror

at this sorry sight.

No one has to say

I did my very best

and I would feel

a whole lot better

after a little rest.

I just need someone

who will

hold my hand

and help lead me

out of this troubled land.

  1. We all need that someone who will just hold our hand! On Feb. 11 my “hand holder” and I will celebrate our 57th anniversary. Ah, believe me, it has not always been a hunky-dory life of wedded bliss, but we hung in there, and the trip was worth the tenacity! Love and respect – for a life-time, that is my prayer for you, too!
