Not once in my life have I ever been so low,
So confused and lost not knowing which way to go.
Trying to pick up the pieces of a wreckage I left behind,
I often wonder if I have completely lost my mind.
Everything I try no matter how simple it may be,
Miserably failing seems all that there is for me.
Hoping and praying that soon things will come my way,
How I have longed for this to happen , soon someday.
Stay postive and be confident that's all I ever hear,
These struggles I go through has been this way for years.
I feel like a piece of old railroad track tossed to the side,
Only to spend all my time watching my life pass me by.
Please I would ask could you lend a friend a hand,
So confused , tired and I just don't understand.
I'm the missing pieces to a puzzle the pocket with no change,
Can't figure anything out and things just aren't the same.
Help me to my feet and show the right direction to me,
If you do this I know I'll get it right this time you'll see.
It doesn't take much to make a man fall down ,
Much more to get him up when there's nobody around.
There is somerhing I've learn trying to do it all alone,
Without any help my friend you can't do it on your own.
