Honey be good to me-prednisone sucks.

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.
