Yesterday was a shit day
I really felt so sad
I had my haircut and it looked good
But the rest of the day went bad.
It feels like I am burdened
By the needs of others
And when I need support from them
Their love for me seems to falter.
I do not want too much
I simply want you all
To give a hand when I yell for help
When my world is about to fall.
Prednisone makes my face look fat
It takes my self-esteem away
My world becomes a pit of writhing snakes
My fears won’t blow away.
Sometimes I need a helping hand
To piece my world together
The moment of need is usually temporary
And doesn’t last forever.
So if you see me crying
In a helpless kind of way
Give me a hand and pull me up
It’s just a miserable steroid day.
