Lifeline

Holding on for something more
Money running out
The well almost dry
Looking for help

She tries everything
Does all she can
To keep above water
Deviating from her plan

She forgets to breathe
As she fights on
The gods don’t listen
Has she done something wrong?

Those closest won’t help
Most ignore her
Used to it anyway
The line is just a blur

All she can do it try
Try to find a way
Hoping for a lifeline
For change will come someday
