Maybe it will all be better tomorrow. Maybe things won’t have to be this way. Maybe, at the edge of all of this sickness and sorrow, Is the dawn of some brighter day. I don’t feel like I can go on any longer. I don’t know just how to make this right. The pain and the strain of a loss of hope Getting only stronger Is strangling me ever so tight.
