The One Who Needs Help

It’s a horrible feeling.
To feel worthless.
To feel
you have no purpose.
To be the one
who needs help.
The disgust on their face when they look at you.
The anger in their voice when they talk to you.
I know now how it feels.
To depend on others.
To need help.
It’s so easy to judge.
They’ve never been in your shoes.
It’s so easy to get angry.
Deem them weak,
inferior,
poor.
Can you put yourself
in their shoes?
Of course you can.
And you would do so much better,
wouldn’t you?
You’d be so much stronger.
Well, luckily you only have to imagine.
‘Cause God forbid you were actually
in their shoes.
You’d probably have a little more heart.
It’s a horrible feeling to feel worthless.
To feel you have no purpose.
To be the one who needs help.
I don’t think anyone
wants to feel
that way.
