This is one of my poems where I can let out what I'm feeling- where I explain how hard I try to fix and help people with problems and how hard I try to keep my own sanity. Please don't criticize me, it's just how I've grown up. Comment as you like, but be gentle please.

I am always trying.

I try to help people with anything,

Try to calm them.

I try to help the environment,

In this world of denial.

I am always trying my hardest,

To do what, I don’t know,

But for right now, the goal is this:

To live, to survive.

And no one knows,

No one sees,

How hard I am trying,

How desperately I cling to the cliff’s edge,

And how I’m trying not to fall,

Even when I want to let go.

I am trying most desperately,

And for the first time in my life,

To help myself,

Even when I think,

And even when I know,

It is already too late.
