Poem: I Stand There Wondering

I stand there surrounded by darkness
And wonder if I’m making a mistake
But it’s not like I have a choice
There’s nowhere else for me to go
So I must remain where I am
And hope that things will get better
Yet hoping is simply not enough
I have stand strong and confident
I have to take action and fight
To make things better in my life
So I don’t have to stand there
Surrounded by darkness
With tears streaming down my face
Wondering if I’m making a mistake

    I think I understand. I, too, was in that position at one time. 'Long story, but I do understand.
