There are days when I wish I were dead.
Lately too many days when I feel this way.
I don’t know what to do to feel better.
I feel over-whelmed about all my responsibilities.
I need help but there is no one to help me.
I am the one who handles everything.
I feel guilty when I think about the chaos I would leave behind.
I wonder if I should get things in order before I go?
I think about how and when.
I can’t tell anyone how I feel because
I am too busy to die.
