Enough Of That

Woe on shoulders,
Carried to uphold.
And enough of that...
Mindset,
To show where everyone goes.
Enough of that...
'Why me?
What is it that I've done?
And...
Why does it seem my life is troubled,
Doubled with a burden that comes.

Enough of that...
Getting up for nothing!
Enough of that...
Finding blame.
Enough of that...
Looking to be pitied.
And...
Empathy given to claim.
Enough of that...
Seeking for excuses.
Enough of that...
Time to find.
Enough of that...
Moaning to groan,
With an ease in the mind to whine!

Enough of that...
Woe on shoulders,
Carried to uphold.
And enough of that...
Mindset,
To show where everyone goes.

I would love to hear what you have to say on a suicide hotline! As always a great slap in the face to wake up from woe. Thanks
