You Made Me A Beast

Simply by abandoning me

A tiger’s head, with mouth open wide, showing its large fangs as it roars.

We all live through the ups and downs
Hopefully with help, never ever alone,
Friends, family, standing by your side
When needing a hug, pick up the phone.

Struggling alone is extremely tough
Trust me, as I know this only too well,
Most of my life I’ve done it on my own
Nary a soul to help…
