What Do We Do

What do we do when we are not okay inside and

Everyone around us doesn’t notice and

Make it worse.

What do we do when it hurts inside and

It is too deep to fix and

We can’t ask for help.

What do we do when people say “you’re full of problems” and

“you’re so depressing to be around” and

Then they leave.

What do we do when we are sick and

Tired of trying to make everyone happy and

We are empty inside.

What are we supposed to do when we lose our way and

Don’t see the point of trying and

Want to give up.
