Support (A Poem About Supporting Others)

Support I give and rarely receive.

How is it the ones closest to you,

Are the ones who don’t support you?

Strangers give you praise and those you love

Wonder why they should.

Why can’t we praise people and support those we love?

Are we only there to support, when times are rough?

Why are those in your corner, not truly there for you?

When they have so much to give when your cards are down, 

But nothing when you achieve your goals. 

Everything Ends

Everything must come to an end.

No matter how much work has been done.

No matter how much time has been given.

Everything must come to an end.

Sadness envelopes me as it ends.

A chapter of my life, which has gotten me through so many challenging times.

All of my work is gone in an instant.

Friendships, stories, development gone.

Where do we go from here, and how do I overcome this crushing defeat?

All things end, but I wish they didn’t have to.
