Hard Times

I didn’t expect to still be here

With nothing to do and nothing to share.

I’m just as surprised as you are.

Sometimes I feel like bursting into tears

But what will that solve?

It seems like I really don’t care

You don’t want to see deep down in there.

I’m just as shocked as you are

That I can still carry on like I have no fears

Who doesn’t have those?

One time it’s a hard lump in my throat

and a burning in my chest

Other times it’s a tingling in my eyes

and a sharp pain in my head

or it could be, just nothing at all.

These are hard times.
