A World of Problems

More by this author
Too many problems,
all overwhelming me.
I can't think straight.
They tower over me
laughing at my uncertainty.
I just want to curl up and hide.
Live in a fairy-tale world,
where my problems won't trouble me.

But there is no such place
no happy ending
'till i get out there and face my problems,
instead of avoiding them.
I must be strong,
and live this life
of problems.

Completely relatable!  I feel like I can relate to all of your work.  You are not alone in these feelings.  Nice job with this, it flows very nicely.

Thanks! That's a reassuring thought, that I'm not alone, although sometimes even when you know others feel the way you do you still feel alone, or at least I do! :P
