Time goes by at lightning speed.
You’re caught up in the day-to-day
and don’t realize time is passing you by.
You live each day
in your special way
with hopes and dreams
for another day.
When things in life go awry,
you try hard not to cry.
The overwhelming pain
consumes your mind
and dampens your spirit.
You close your eyes and question why
life has given you a dark eye.
When the answers don’t come,
you then question and doubt yourself.
And, you ask yourself, “Why Me?”
Then, you find yourself
searching for just a shred of hope
to get you through the day.
