Staying in Reality Gq@PB, 17.02


Weigh me down

Fetter my pace

Make me frown

in the Rat Race


Stomach is empty

Feel hunger pains

There is no sympathy

Use your brains


Find your sustenance

At all cost

Show your competence

Or die in the Frost


Sweep away clutter

Make everything clear

Make room for another

So friends are seen


Thank you for sharing this poem depicting how lonely it can feel when trying to keep one’s mental health up and in a positive light!
