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.
